Useful guidance and toolkits to help you develop your public engagement activities and practice.

University resources and information

The University of Edinburgh hosts a wide range of resources and information useful for anyone wanting to engage members of the public with their research. Depending on the subject area and original purpose of the resource, these may not use the term ‘public engagement’, so we have collated key resources here for ease.

The types of resources you will find useful in developing your public engagement practice will vary greatly depending on your audience, your approach and your own background. Sometimes you may need to borrow techniques from other sectors. Here we list a number of places where you can start to find out more.
