Trainer: Kim Aumann

Session overview

Communities are an important target audience and the cornerstone of many of our activities. So how do we decide which communities to focus on and how do we reach out to them? What do we need to consider when working with them -because if we want to embed public engagement in our research, we have to be able to work with communities who can impact our work and vice versa

In this session, Kim Aumann will remind us of the key principles that underpin effective community engagement, help us consider the skills we need for partnering with community organisations well, and draw on case study examples for us to unravel challenging dynamics that can arise when doing community university research partnership work.
