Using a project management framework you will be given the tools to plan and evaluate your very own public engagement project.This interactive online-workshop series will guide you through how to manage and evaluate your public engagement project to make sure you achieve impact. By working through a case study you will think about target audiences, tailoring activities, budgeting and evaluation plans.

Who’s it for: Early career and graduate ecologists who are thinking about/are doing an engagement project.

By the end of the session the following questions will be answered:

  1. What is impact and how can I achieve it with public engagement?
  2. How can I manage my project to achieve impact?
  3. Evaluation: why is it important and how can I do it?
  4. Can you show me an example?
  5. How can I use this in real life for my own project?
