Public Engagement Evaluation Training | 9th October | Places available
Places are available for the Cambridge Biosciences PE Network Evaluation Training course. It will be a one day training delivered by Dr Jamie Gallagher.
Do you run public engagement events for your lab, Department or Institute? Are you involved in measuring impact for REF?
“Successful engagement with the public can benefit research, researchers and the public – but how do you go about demonstrating this change? Evaluation of engagement doesn’t just help us demonstrate the value of our PE initiatives but can help bring us closer to our audiences by giving the public a strong clear voice. This workshop will guide you through the best evaluation processes showing you When, Why and crucially How to use evaluation to give you reliable and clear data. Demonstrate success to funders; record Impact for REF; learn how to improve your processes and have a better understanding of the people you are connecting with.”
The morning will be a training led by Jamie to gain further insights in the evaluation of public engagement activities. In the afternoon there will be 4-5 smaller workshops where Jamie will support table discussions focussing on particular challenges we come across when evaluating public engagement activities. Those who register for the training will be consulted to identify the topics for the table discussions.
