Research output: Contribution to conferencePoster

Abstract

This poster describes how a ‘toolkit’ developed through funding from the University of Bath Teaching Development Fund scaffolds delivery of public engagement (PE) projects as alternatives to laboratory-based final year research. The projects pair students with active researchers to design PE activities for various public settings. The toolkit contains all aspects of training and assessment, complete with time-directed session plans which enable teaching staff from all disciplines to embed PE into the curriculum and confidently lead sessions
