Public Engagement Network
For UCL staff and students

Welcome to the UCL Public Engagement Network. A combination of regular meetings and a monthly email newsletter, the network brings together UCL staff and students interested in public engagement.

By creating a network of likeminded people, we aim to inspire UCL staff and students to undertake public engagement, share different approaches to engagement and create a forum for exchange and interaction. We want to enable the sharing of knowledge, experiences and best practice and ensure that the support we can offer is known across UCL.

You can read overviews of previous events on the UCL Public Engagement Unit blog.

UCL Public Engagement Network sessions bring together all kinds of people from across UCL who are interested in public engagement: whether you’re an old hand or a complete novice please bring your experience and questions to what we hope will be lively, thought-provoking and participatory sessions.

Please note: these events are suitable for UCL staff and students or those others who are involved in running public engagement activities linked to research and teaching.

Upcoming events:

Public Engagement and your Academic Career 

Wednesday 3rd July, 2019; 2 - 4pm (with drinks and celebratory networking 4pm - 7pm)

Venue: Room 221 (Hong Kong Alumni Room), Bentham House, 4–8 Endsleigh Gardens, WC1H 0EG

This session will bring together people who have felt the benefits of Public Engagement on their practice as an academic, researcher and teacher. You’ll be able to explore and signpost the ways PE could help you, and we’ll be on hand to discuss the role the Public Engagement Team can play in offering support if you feel your engagement is not being effective. 

This Public Engagement Network event will run from 14.00-16.00 as normal. However, we do invite you to stay afterwards for informal networking and drinks to celebrate the end of the academic year.

Please note: these events are suitable for UCL staff and students or those others who are involved in running public engagement activities linked to research and teaching.
