Working in University Outreach: Skills for STEM Engagement

Monday 20th April 12pm - Tuesday 21st April
12.30pm, Edinburgh


Do you work in Outreach? Is it your role to manage, develop and deliver research engagement? For example, based in a university or research centre?

Over a number years there has been a steady increase in the number of BIG members whose role is managing public engagement of research. With lots of ideas and emerging issues in the field we're enthused to get these like-minded people together. It will be an opportunity to network, share ideas and experiences with people who work in the same field and identify developments and issues we can work on together.

Format and Learning Outcomes

This workshop will run over two half days (lunchtime to lunchtime) with an evening social in between. We have a workshop structure that combines pre-determined themes (Insight sessions) along with creative time that will be filled with attendee sessions on themes that arise before or during the workshop.

Insight sessions will include looking at:
  • Impact (with a surgery and attendee developed ‘cost menu’)
  • Working with researchers (training, recruiting, sustaining)
  • Best practice
  • Unusual and intriguing projects
  • What social science says about public engagement.
