Introduction to Public Engagement with Research
This short course on public engagement with research includes featured examples of public engagement activities which are primarily conducted by researchers in Classics and related subjects. However, the principles addressed here apply equally to public engagement with research in other academic disciplines, and the skills which this course teaches will be of relevance to researchers in other fields.
After studying this course you should be able to:
- define public engagement and understand how it differs from other types of interaction with audiences outside universities
- describe your own research in a way which is relatable to a non-specialist audience
- identify potential target audiences and community partners for public engagement activities
- understand how factors such as budget, location, and available resources can help you to decide on a format for public engagement activities
