Event description

The Engaged Scholarship Learning Lab is being funded by UKRI/ESRC and runs in partnership with BAM. ESLL builds capacity for academics and practitioners to work together to exchange knowledge, design research projects together, test ideas and reflect on the implications of findings to address 'tricky' problems in their contexts.

Come along to ESLL's Getting Started with Engaged Scholarship Session on Wednesday 26th January (09:30-10:30 on MS Teams) to learn about why Engaged Scholarship matters and how it can help you with publishing, attracting funding, creating impact and teaching.

You will hear more about the methodology and have a chance to reflect on accelerating your journey as an Engaged Scholar. You will also learn how to get involved in our full programme of events and our growing community in the Engaged Scholarship Learning Lab.

MS Teams Link will be sent to registered delegates.
