The inaugural #UofGEngage event will take place on Friday 5 February 2021 at 10am with a special look at Digital Engagement.
The pandemic has forced a shift in how we engage, from the physical to the digital. How have we stayed connected with communities online? What worked? What didn’t work? What have we learned? Join us for a panel discussion and Q&A, with guest speakers from across the university.
- Katrina Igglesden (College of Arts)- using social media & online workshops to engage Pacific Island communities with barkcloth research
- Megan MacLeod (College of MVLS) – re-imagining schools engagement to combine online and in-person activities, and exploring new platforms to answer questions about vaccines
- Helen Mullen (College of Social Sciences) – developing civic engagement throughout the pandemic: mentoring with MCR Pathways
- With a pre-recorded contribution from Julien Reboud (College of Science & Engineering) – connecting online to promote digital health in the diagnosis of infectious disease in East Africa
Chaired by Zara Gladman, Public & Community Engagement Advisor.
