Due to the ongoing Covid situation Interact 2021 will now be held as an online event. Entitled V- Interact, this free one day online symposium will take place on Tuesday 14th September 2021 as a series of themed workshops.
Commencing with an opening plenary, there will then be a focus on two core topics: running and evaluating online engagement and supporting an equitable Covid recovery.
Above all, it is a chance to share your online experiences and take part in discussions which will help shape engagement work going forward.
The event will also help shape our programme for Interact 2022, which will go ahead in person on 13th and 14th September 2022, hosted by Cardiff University.
V- Interact offers something for everyone wanting to hear from others and discuss how the pandemic has affected their engagement activities, it will provide a great opportunity to learn how people have adapted their engagement for online delivery, explore how this was evaluated, and provide a chance to share your experience and good practice.
A draft programme will be published in the summer but you can sign up to register and get updates here.
