Time: 12 noon – 2pm
Venue:The Gannochy, Wolfson Medical School Building

Evaluation is an important part of Public Engagement, it allows us to identify any impact generated and helps us to improve and adapt the engagement process.

Evaluation is, however, often seen as difficult and intrusive, which it needn't be. This session will guide you through different evaluation methods to help you get the most use out of your public engagement initiatives whether large or small.

The session will look at the how and why of data capture as well as strategies for getting the information you need from a representative sample.

The University's Public Engagement Officer, Dr Jamie Gallagher, will look at how evaluation can be built into your activity. 

The seminar will be interactive and we encourage you to bring questions, discussion points or suggestions from your own research and KE activity that you like to share.

A buffet lunch will be provided at 12 noon in the Wolfson Atrium with the seminar beginning at 12.30pm.
