Public Engagement 101: Goal Setting, Network Mapping, and Message Development

February 21, 12:00pm to 2:00pm
Hadley Room, Campus Center, University of Massachusetts Amherst

In this two-hour, highly interactive workshop hosted by the UMass Public Engagement Project (PEP), former PEP Director Amy Schalet and current PEP Co-Director Ezra Markowitz will lead participants through a series of concrete activities that will improve and support their ability to effectively engage with diverse audiences, including members of the public, journalists and policymakers.

This is a hands-on, active event, so participants will get the most out of the workshop if they come with a particular research product they want to share (e.g., paper, book, study) in mind. The activities are designed to be useful for all who are interested in improving their public engagement efforts, including both seasoned communicators and those who are just starting out. 
Seating is limited.
