This course provides an opportunity to consider if and how to translate your public engagement plans to an online context. Looking at purpose, people and process, the course provides an opportunity to think through how to design your engagement, top tips on how to ensure you and your participants get the most out of the engagement, and ideas for how to evaluate it. You will have the opportunity to explore some case studies of practice, before considering how to apply the framework to your own work.
