Research Week: How Public Engagement Makes Research Better
Tuesday, Nov. 22, 10-11:30 a.m.
Memorial’s Research Week, a celebration of the internationally renowned research work collaboratively carried out by our research community and public partners, takes place November 21st – 25th. As part of that programming, the Office of Public Engagement and the Harris Centre are collaborating on an Engage Memorial session with a focus on faculty.
Public engagement is a key part of the academic’s toolkit: not only does it support academic success, but it also helps faculty fulfill more intrinsic goals, including making a positive difference in the world, and contributing to the province and our communities. That said, as with all human relationships, public engagement can be complex and challenging too.
Join us for a multidisciplinary panel discussion, and hear how Memorial researchers have incorporated and navigated public engagement in their research, and what they’d like to see for the future of engaged research at Memorial.
Hosted by Dr. Margaret Steel, Dean, Faculty of Medicine.
