Practical public engagement (16 June)
This GRADskills workshop is for research postgraduates and staff from any discipline. It will start with a variety of simple exercises designed to help you communicate your research directly to non-specialist audiences. From there we will look at the variety of audiences and delivery possibilities for engagement locally, nationally and globally.
We will briefly consider public engagement as a pathway to impact and how to design evaluation as proof of impact. Those who wish to can arrange to meet with Mhairi at a later date to develop individual public engagement plans.
