Train the trainer: focus on public engagement29 March 2012
This event is for staff supporting the development of researchers only.
Public Engagement (PE) covers a wide range of activities that are a sub-set of the wider Impact agenda which is of growing importance to researchers at all levels. The range of activities associated with PE include writing articles in magazines, trade journals, blogs and social networks to giving lectures and workshops to schools, charities, local government and businesses. It can be particularly challenging for researchers to ‘translate’ their highly specialised, and often abstract research ideas into a palatable form for these other stake-holders especially when giving ‘live’ oral presentations.
This event is an opportunity to find out how to best support your researchers and find creative ideas to apply to your own training.
Join us to increase your knowledge and explore the following:
techniques such as story-telling and the use of analogy
how to deal with challenging questions
preparing memorable presentations using audio-visual aids
