This is session 4 of 6 masterclasses. This masterclass will allow you to build on your learnings from the core masterclasses and develop your ideas further.

You will get a chance to:

  • Develop new and existing ideas for public engagement activities or events, through group and individual exercises using creative, problem-solving and ideas-generation approaches 
  • Share and hear a diverse range of ideas, from experiences at the Great Exhibition Road Festival, a digital engagement platform you would like to try out, a big question you would like to turn into an activity, an audience you would like to engage or a topic that you would like to create an event around
  • Collaborate with colleagues and facilitators to think about the next exciting directions in the progression of your engagement idea
  • Gain inspiration and new perspectives through sharing ideas with others  in the session
  • Understand the next steps towards putting your engagement ideas into action

Who is it for?

This masterclass is for you if you:

  • Have attended the core engagement masterclasses
  • Feel inspired by public engagement and would like to take your ideas to the next level – whether that is getting your first idea started or developing an existing idea creatively
  • Have become a bit stuck with your idea, are unsure what to do with it next or how to make it happen
  • Are open-minded and looking to discuss ideas with others
  • Would like space to think creatively and innovatively about public engagement

*Please note that engagement activities that may support teaching and learning practice can be used to support an application for HEA fellowship via Imperial’s STAR framework.
