Public Engagement Training: Focus Group with Lunch for ECRs and PGRs

The Public Engagement with Research Committee and University Graduate School invite postgraduate research students and early-career researchers to join us on Monday 10th April for an informal focus group discussion with free lunch to gather the community’s views on public engagement training support needs. We will then use your views to help shape future plans and training opportunities.

  • What skills would you like to develop to carry out high quality public engagement?

  • What should training sessions look like? What schedule is most convenient to you?

  • What opportunities to do actual public engagement can we help arrange?

  • Do STEM and Arts/Humanities/Social Sciences researchers need different training?

  • How can we create training opportunities to help researchers collaborate on interdisciplinary public engagement?

 

SIGN UP HERE

 

All PGRs and ECRs are welcome to join us. You do not need to have any prior experience doing public engagement. During the session we will also hear from a couple of PhD/PostDoc researcher representatives about their experiences with public engagement. Please sign up so that we have an idea of numbers for catering purposes, thanks!

Time: 10:30 – 13:30 including a free lunch for participants at 12noon

Location: Westmere House (Graduate School – G15, green zone on map)

We look forward to welcoming you.
