Event description

Description

Public engagement has in recent years become central to the research agenda. The ability to share your research effectively with non-experts has become an increasingly important skill for a researcher to develop.

The presentation will look at how research is used to engage the public. We will look at how ideas were developed and the importance of asking the likely users of the research what they think. We will look at the methods used to gather data, how feedback is provided. We will look at engagement with the media. Below are some weblinks to use, the video by Michael Johnson which we were part of, a journal article.
