The Royal Society has some fantastic training opportunities coming up in March for researchers who want to find out more about public engagement and school engagement.

Both training days will be held at Carlton House Terrace in London. 

Introduction to public engagement

12 March 2019, 10am – 4.30pm

This course is designed for early-mid career scientists who are embarking on independent research careers (approx. 2 - 10 years post-PhD).

This course will enable you to take part in, or create, public engagement activities that are research-led and relevant to you. Designed with early-mid career researchers in mind, the course includes sessions on the benefits of public engagement, what ‘good’ looks like and understanding audiences, as well as how to create public engagement activities that grow out of, and complement, your research.

The course will be delivered by Dr Steve Cross in an interactive and participatory style, combining discussion, reflection and activity based approaches.

Cost: £150 +VAT (The course fee and travel expenses are covered for Royal Society fellowship holders, including the University Research Fellowship, Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship, Sir Henry Dale Fellowship, Newton International Fellowship and Industry Fellowship.)

Engaging with schools

21 March 2019, 10am – 5pm

This course offers early-mid career researchers the opportunity to share experiences and learning with like-minded scientists, to explore approaches for engaging more effectively with schools and young people, and to reflect on your own activities and aspirations for working with schools.

The course will be delivered by Dr Ceri Harrop and Dee-Ann Johnson and will include sessions on understanding the school environment, exploring teacher and pupil expectations, considering learning methodologies and practical tips for pitching, designing and delivering engaging activities in schools.

Cost: £150 +VAT (The course fee and travel expenses are covered for Royal Society fellowship holders, including the University Research Fellowship, Dorothy Hodgkin Fellowship, Sir Henry Dale Fellowship, Newton International Fellowship and Industry Fellowship.)
