Moving dialogue online is a series of workshops designed for researchers and facilitators working in knowledge exchange and public engagement with research. These sessions look beyond running virtual events, to exploring how deeper engagement, such as facilitating debate, dialogue events and participatory processes, can be run online.
This workshop series is organised by Research Services and led by the Stickydot team, based in Brussels, Belgium, who have a wealth of expertise in participatory processes around research and innovation, on and offline. It brings together participants working on a range of projects to share insight and experiences and develop relevant skills to design and run online participatory workshops.
Each session lasts two hours and is held on Zoom. The sessions draw on existing good practices and research findings both within our sector and further afield. They are dynamic and interactive, ensuring plenty of time for discussion and sharing of experiences.
