Introduction to Community Engagement

Intended Audience: The intended audience for this workshop is Research Staff  and DPhil students from the Social Sciences Division. Due to limited space, Research Staff will take priority, with places for DPhil students being made available depending on space. 


Brand new session for SSD delivered by National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE)

This session provides an introduction and overview of what’s involved when working in mutually beneficial research partnerships with communities. The course provides a grounding in developing your approach, and enables participants to work with their partners to consider if and how working together would be beneficial to all those involved.

Learning objectives

Participants will have the opportunity to

  • Consider their knowledge and understanding of community engagement and community engaged research
  • Explore the continuum of collaborative research with communities
  • Think about what helps to build strong community engagement and enhance their skills by experimenting with these ideas
  • Reflect on how community engagement relates to their own work and roles.



The NCCPE will be back at the Social Sciences Division to lead a session called ‘Engaging with Tricky Topics’ in June. More details to follow through usual newsletter/e-mail routes!
