The annual AHRC-TORCH Public Engagement with Research Summer School is a five-day programme of skills workshops, lectures, and small groups sessions, designed to furnish participants with the skills to integrate public engagement into their research.
The aims of the summer school are:
• To introduce doctoral students and early career researchers to the idea and application of public engagement with research through experiential learning.
• To integrate public engagement into their research and professional identities of participating researchers
• To develop an idea of the idea of the publicly engaged humanities, building on the precedent of past public engagement initiatives in the humanities at Oxford
• To help participants develop their own public engagement with research projects, encouraging an entrepreneurial approach.
• To give participants the tools to communicate effectively with the public, via online media and in person
• Offer participants the grant-writing skills to fund their own projects
• Develop a sustainable cohort of postgraduate researchers participating in public engagement with research at Oxford and beyond.
