Public Engagement – what's in it for PGRs and HEIs?

Network - Postgraduate Issues Network

The National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement and the SRHE, Postgraduate Issues Network are hosting a joint seminar to explore the impact of public engagement on Postgraduate Researchers and their institutions.
 

Few would disagree with the widely held view in the Higher Education sector that engaging with the public is good for research as well as the 'public', but what is in it for Postgraduate Researchers (PGRs), their supervisors and Higher Education Institutions (HEIs)? 
Clearly Public Engagement is central to the impact agenda and highly topical, in terms of informing the environment section of the REF, but what do we understand about this kind of activity, what do we need to know and what insights can we share?  Through presentations and group discussion, this seminar will explore and provide insights into public engagement - the challenges and opportunities – from both the postgraduate and the HEI perspective.


Key questions include:
• How does public engagement activity benefit PGRs? 
• Should they get involved or does it interfere with their research? 
• If HEIs and funders want to encourage more of this activity, what kind of support do they need to provide? 
• What do supervisors and institutions get out of this, via their PGRs, and do we need more evidence to support the case for public engagement activity?
