#PEPTogether online get-togethers

An informal online space for engagement professionals during these uncertain times

#PEPTogether monthly online get-togethers

As we try to make sense of what is happening in the world, in the UK, in our universities, in our neighbourhoods, in our lives, we think it is important to create space to think together. Since March 2020, the PEPtogethers have provided such a rich place to engage together, to share some of the highs and lows of life during a pandemic; and to support one another as we adapt to new ways of working, thinking and doing. The NCCPE have been delighted to work with the sector to create spaces for really useful conversation, which you can see summarised in the reports below.

We are now running monthly online PEPtogether for members of the PEP Network – so do join us if you haven’t already (it’s free!). If you would like to participate in the monthly events, but aren’t able to join the network, we will be delighted to welcome you as a guest. You’ll just need to let us know you are coming.

Coming up

PEP Insights Research Study - initial findings and reflections

Thursday 15th April, 11.00 - 12.30

Our April PEPTogether is a chance to get an early look at the initial findings from the PEP Insights Research Study. This work seeks to explore the impact of COVID-19 on UK public engagement professionals and the engagement work of universities. 

The Peer Research Team has been gathering the experiences of a broad range of PEPs during the pandemic, unearthing the challenges faced and opportunities taken, and seeking to identify lessons learned and how we might negotiate the future together. The data shared in this session is informed by peer-to-peer interviews, focus groups and an online questionnaire.

The link to join will be available on the PEP Network slack channel. If you aren't a member but would like to join us, please email Maddy at maddy.foard@uwe.ac.uk.
