Public Engagement - report
This inaugural one day event, which took place in July 2018, was an opportunity to be inspired, to learn, to be challenged and keep up to date with the cutting-edge of PER Practice and policy.
Selected sessions were filmed and are available on our youtube playlist.
You can review the sessions that took place by downloading a copy of the PER Conference 2018 online brochure.pdf.
A few highlights that I highly recommend watching:
Dr Kevin Burchell, Independent Researcher and Dr Jenni Chambers, Head of Public Engagement Programmes, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) on the history and drivers of Public Engagement.
"One thing I have come to appreciate is that public engagement is a life-long learning endeavour – there are always opportunities to learn and improve one’s practice; to innovate and to try something different".
- Professor Alison Woollard, Academic Champion for Public Engagement with Research, University of Oxford
The next Public Engagement with Research Conference will take place in 2020.
