Do Public Engagement
A new module of training sessions for carrying out effective public engagement with research has been developed in a collaboration between the University of Lincoln and the University of Southampton, grant-funded by UKRI. The module is made up of 4 episodes, outlined below. These can completed as standalone sessions, if there is an area you are particularly interested in, or in sequence.
Each Episode has an online element, to be completed prior to the session and a face to face session.
The PEARL Activity grants fund new activities every year that get people beyond the University involved in research.
Staff and students can apply for funding to run an interactive event or demonstration at a local school, invite a community group to come and give their opinion on research or be participants (e.g. take a survey, offer opinion, help design research…), host a focus group or debate and more. The brief is designed to invite innovation, as showed in the range of the 11 funded PEARL 2019-20 projects.
Through this section PEARL will be gathering and sharing additional opportunities for staff and students to organise, support and recognise activity engaging people in research. News will include external opportunities to apply for funding, attend workshops and training, try new resources and more.
Share & Celebrate
At the University of Lincoln, the Vice-Chancellor’s Public Engagement with Research Awards recognise staff and students who have made outstanding contributions to engaging people and communities beyond the university in new knowledge, invention and discovery.
Students across the University can also elect to have their work engaging people with research recognised in working towards and achieving the Lincoln Award.
PEARL (Public Engagement for All with Research at Lincoln) look forward to welcoming staff and students to the third annual University of Lincoln Public Engagement with Research Conference in March 2020. This will celebrate and share the extensive research that takes place across university which offers opportunities for members of the public to get involved.
The University of Lincoln is producing its first Annual Report Discover, celebrating public engagement with research at Lincoln: showcasing inspiring activities in which staff and students have engaged with the world beyond the university. Discover 2018 will be a full-colour publication available online and in hard copy from March 2019.
