Evaluating your public engagement activity is always best practice. It’s vital if you are ever going to want to use your activity as part of a REF Impact Case Study, however even if you think you aren’t you can still gain a lot from effective evaluation. In this session we’ll explore setting aims and objectives for your activity, different methods for evaluation, and how to choose the right one for you. We’ll also touch on good evaluation questions, survey design and how to maximise response rates.
Who should attend?
University of Warwick Research Active Staff (research, academic or teaching contracts) and PhD Students.
- Understand and define your public engagement aims and objectives
- Have a broad overview of evaluation methods available to you
- Understand what information you need to capture if you’re thinking about REF Impact (we’ll give a general overview and can follow up specifically with one on one advice as this can vary)
