About this Event
The Engaged Scholarship Learning Lab is being funded by UKRI/ESRC and run in partnership with BAM. We are building capacity for academics and practitioners to work together to exchange knowledge, design research projects together, test ideas and reflect on the implications of findings to address 'tricky' problems in their contexts.
Come along to our Becoming an Engaged Scholar Session on Thursday 10th February (09:30-12:30 on MS Teams). Whether you are new to Engaged Scholarship or developing your approach, join our workshop on Becoming an Engaged Scholar. The session will help you reflect on why you want to be an Engaged Scholar and what kind of Engaged Scholarship you are doing and/or want to do. It will also help you to identify your existing skills and appreciate areas for development or teamwork. And you will have space to strategically assess the stakeholders you are – or could – engage with to create maximum impact. The session will help you identify practical next steps and see how getting involved in our webinar series, using our Resource Bank and contributing to our Festival can support your journey and enable you to be part of a community of Engaged Scholars.
MS Teams Link will be sent to registered delegates.
