#UofGEngage 2 - Arts-STEM collaboration & engagement

Our second #UofGEngage event Science/Engineering and Arts Engagement Collaborations took place on Friday 5 March 2021.

We brought together people from across the university to explore inter-disciplinary collaborations between science or engineering and the arts. How can it benefit our engagement, our research and our teaching? What support is needed to encourage collaborations or make them more diverse?

We had case studies of successful examples, information about funding that encourages inter-disciplinary approaches, and opportunities to make connections.

Speakers included:

We were also joined by other experienced collaborators during our breakout sessions and chat.

#UofGEngage 1 - Digital engagement

Thanks to everyone who came along to the inaugural #UofGEngage event which took place on Friday 5 February 2021 with a special look at Digital Engagement.

The pandemic has forced a shift in how we engage, from the physical to the digital. How have we stayed connected with communities online? What worked? What didn't work? What have we learned? Our first event explored this topic with guest speakers from across the University:


  • Katrina Igglesden (College of Arts)- using social media & online workshops to engage Pacific Island communities with barkcloth research
  • Megan MacLeod (College of MVLS) - re-imagining schools engagement to combine online and in-person activities, and exploring new platforms to answer questions about vaccines
  • Helen Mullen (College of Social Sciences) - developing civic engagement throughout the pandemic: mentoring with MCR Pathways
  • With a pre-recorded contribution from Julien Reboud (College of Science & Engineering) - connecting online to promote digital health in the diagnosis of infectious disease in East Africa
