Introduction to Public Engagement 2017
Date: 21st February 2017
This one day course is aimed at PhD students who have little to no experience of working with general audiences.
Do you want to explore ways of sharing your research with many different audiences? Whether it’s public talks, writing in our blog, running art / science collaborations, doing some stand-up comedy or simply standing on a box in a street corner, this session will help you get started.
Do you want to involve the public in your research? The session will also look at how different audiences can help you carry out your research through citizen science or research in schools projects. Finally find out how doing all this can help with career progression alongside information on funding available for you to turn your public engagement ideas into reality.
In the morning there will be ideas aplenty for what you can do with the public, based on what other SEPnet physicists have done in the past. In the afternoon we are offering hands-on sessions from professional physics communicators on writing about your research for blogs and articles, and talking about your research in an informal setting.
