Event description
The inaugural #UofGEngage forum meeting! This month we're sharing experiences of digital engagement during the COVID-19 pandemic.

About this event

The #UofGEngage Forum is a new space for staff and students interested in public and community engagement to come together, share ideas, network and build a community.

This forum has been created in response to demand by staff and students, highlighted by the recent public and community engagement survey and wider consultation.

We're excited to launch on Friday 5 February with a special look at Digital Engagement.

The pandemic has forced a shift in how we engage, from the physical to the digital. How have we stayed connected with communities online? What worked? What didn't work? What have we learned? Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A, with guest speakers from across the university.


  • Katrina Igglesden (College of Arts)- using social media & online workshops to engage Pacific Island communities with barkcloth research
  • Megan MacLeod (College of MVLS) - re-imagining schools engagement to combine online and in-person activities, and exploring new platforms to answer questions about vaccines
  • Helen Mullen (College of Social Sciences) - developing civic engagement throughout the pandemic: mentoring with MCR Pathways
  • With a pre-recorded contribution from Julien Reboud (College of Science & Engineering) - connecting online to promote digital health in the diagnosis of infectious disease in East Africa

Chaired by Zara Gladman, Public & Community Engagement Advisor.

Comment along with us on the day using the hashtag #UofGEngage.

The event will be followed by an optional Speed-networking session, giving you the chance to meet and mix with colleagues from different disciplines.

Please note that elements of the panel discussion and Q&A may be recorded for training and legacy purposes.
