Working in University Outreach: How to Train Researchers
What is it about?
Do you work in a university supporting public engagement and outreach in STEM subjects? Have you been asked to develop and deliver training sessions for researchers? If yes, then this BIG Skills Day is for you! In this highly practical day we’ll share our experiences of running workshops for researchers.
We’ll talk about the Who, What, Where, When and How of training academics at various career stages. We’ll share good practise, learn from other people’s mistakes and develop a toolkit of example activities to use in your own training. Bring along your own experiences to share and any challenges you’re encountering too.
