What is your responsibility to society as a researcher? What are your goals with regard to research impact and public engagement? How do you leverage and expand the skills in your research toolkit to achieve those goals and fulfill your responsibilities in the area of public engagement?
This tutorial will first lead participants through clarifying one’s impact/engagement goals, conducting a stakeholder analysis, and creating a project knowledge translation plan. Following a short break, we will delve into examples of, and skills for, a few specific types of common public engagement activities: media interviews, op-ed writing, public-oriented research summaries/videos/infographics, and policy briefing notes. There will be opportunities to practice some of these skills within the tutorial, as well as resources provided for further individual development.
