Evaluating our work – come and test out a draft approach to evaluating public engagement with genome editing. Get support for evaluating your work, understanding your publics, and assessing the outcomes from your engagement, and help us build a resource to support us to evaluate what we do.
Developing a national conversation - a round table discussion exploring if and how to develop a national conversation around genome editing. Specifically focused on organisations keen to collaborate on developing an approach – this session will explore purpose; participants (including publics and partners); potential approaches; and next steps.
Developing training for engaging with new scientific developments - have you got great ideas about how to train others to engage with genome editing? Do you want to share tips about how to equip others to engage well? This workshop is ideal to do just that.
Please use the below space to provide details on why you chose your first preference session. For example, is there something you feel you could contribute to the session? Or is this an area you feel you want to learn more about?
