ECR Lunch: Engaging in Outreach
On December 7, 2017, the Young Academy hosted a very successful ECR Lunch on engaging in outreach. The goal of this lunch was to discuss the importance of outreach, review best practices and tips and tricks for preparing outreach programs, and finally brainstorm with other ECR’s about specific activities to bring our research to the public. These outreach events will be part of upcoming YAG-led outreach activities, including King’s Day events held in Groningen on April 27, 2018.
To help with the discussion and activities, Arjen Dijkstra and his team gave an overview of outreach activities and support within the University. He and his team also worked with ECR’s in small groups to provide feedback and help with brainstorming.
After working in small groups, ideas for outreach activities were shared. It was great to see which creative ways were developed to share complex research in educational, engaging and entertaining ways!
