Beginner’s Guide to Evaluating Public Engagement
Monday, 30 January, 9.30am – 1pm, 3.1, Roscoe Building
This interactive back-to-basics workshop will encourage you to think about why evaluation of public engagement is important; look at ways to get started; explore different techniques you can use; and consider what your findings can tell you.
Masterclass in Evaluating Public Engagement
Monday, 6 February, 9.30am – 1pm, 3.1 Roscoe Building, Brunswick St
This interactive workshop will provide an opportunity for you to reflect on your own practice, and consider how to maximise the value of evaluating your engagement activities. You will have the opportunity to explore some of the challenges of evaluating public engagement; to reflect on how evaluation can inform your own work and provide evidence of impact; to be introduced to different evaluation models; to review a range of public engagement evaluation case studies; and to share your experiences and learn from the experiences of others. Following the workshop, we will be holding an optional one-hour surgery for anyone who has a public engagement activity or project they wish to evaluate. The surgery provides a chance for you to reflect on an evaluation strategy for your own activity and how to put it into practice.
