This is the third of four workshop sessions in this year’s public engagement training programme. If you have any questions about the programme, or this session in particular, please get in touch: You can register for this session here.

This session is open to all University of Lincoln staff (academic, professional services or other) and postgraduate students.

This workshop is recommended for those who are familiar with the basics of public engagement with research and who may be preparing to develop or support their own, more in depth public engagement projects.

About this workshop

This session explores how to choose and develop appropriate engagement activities, how to tackle common logistical issues, funding and more. This includes:

  • How to choose and develop an appropriate engagement activity, including when and how to utilise digital and distanced approaches.
  • Identifying important logistics and considerations for planning an activity, including health and safety, key resources and how to publicise to your audience.
  • Learn what funding is available for public engagement activity and how to apply.

Workshops are delivered by Public Engagement Manager, Dr Matt Young.

Workshop Format

Each workshop will comprise the following:

  • 15-20 minute pre-workshop task: These will be made available to participants one week before the workshop. Pre-workshop tasks will help form part of the discussions and activities during the workshop, so participants are encouraged to complete each task to the best of their ability.
  • 3-hour interactive, face-to-face workshop: Each workshop is comprised of short talks, interactive activities and discussion through which participants will be able to develop skills, understanding and take-home resources. A short comfort break is included in all workshops. All participants will be asked to complete a short feedback form after each session.
