Public engagement (PE) and knowledge exchange (KE) are increasingly seen as an integral part of academic work. They disseminate research findings, produce impact, strengthen universities’ reputation and attract future students. And they can undoubtedly be a lot of fun. This learning lunch looks at the way they can also improve our teaching. Issues that will be raised include how Public Engagement / Knowledge Exchange experience; can change the way in which we interact with students, make lectures more engaging, make assessments more relevant and increase a sense of satisfaction with the role of an academic teacher.  Practical tips and recommendations will also be shared. 

This event is aimed at staff in CAHSS (in particular PPLS) but is open to staff in other colleges working in relevant disciplines.
