Event description

Description

Please note that this session is open to research students and staff at Birkbeck, University of London only.

Overview

This introduction to public engagement for PhD students, postdocs and early career researchers, will be an active exploration of public engagement and how it relates to your research.

At Birkbeck we have a long history of socially engaged practice and our public engagement with research honours our commitment to making research available to society; working with external partners and organisations and creating opportunities for knowledge exchange. Our public engagement encompasses the widest possible variety of engagement activities: researchers work with students, community groups cultural and political institutions, businesses, social action organisations and many others to create vibrant, fascinating and important research.

This course introduces the concept of public engagement and provides students with tools needed to begin engaging the public with their research.

Aims and objectives:

  • Participants will be guided through the aims and objectives for public engagement
  • Identifying and understanding audiences
  • Developing ideas for a public engagement activity
  • Identifying areas for personal development of public engagement skills and where to access these opportunities.
