Enhancing Impact Case Studies for REF 2021: Public Engagement - for researchers, London, 31 Oct
19 September 2019
Public Engagement - training
Join The National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE) for this national event on Thursday 31st October in London to reflect on the role of public engagement in REF 2021, and to enhance your Impact Case Studies (ICS). With expert guidance, group activities and discussions, sole work, paired feedback, and specialist knowledge provided by the NCCPE, this interactive workshop will enable you to refresh your REF 2021 thinking.
NOTE: If you attended the 'Develop your Impact Case Study for REF 2021 – Public Engagement' session in June then you will have gone through a very similar session.
There will be opportunities to enrich your understanding of public engagement impacts and how they can be evidenced, and consider the features of high quality narrative.
Bring along your REF 2021 ICS to work through during the event. This could be your own case study, or one from the institution that you are supporting, and can be in any stage of development.
The event will close with an opportunity to hear from Steven Hill from Research England, who will be sharing his reflections on why impact and public engagement matter to Research England and UKRI.
This event is targeted at:
- Academics and researchers that have an ICS with a public engagement focus or those that have a key role for REF at their institution
- HEI professional services staff involved in supporting the development of impact case studies
N.B - Please note, we are now fully booked for HEI professional services staff wishing to book an individual place. Please get in touch if you would like to be placed on the waiting list. We are still accepting places for individual academics and researchers. If you are HEI professional services staff and can attend with an academic or researcher you can apply for a place.
The event will take place on Thursday 31st October at Woburn House, London and will run from 10.00am to 3.30pm. N.B if you are also attending the mini ‘Train-the-Trainer’ workshop, this will finish at 4.30pm.
