Public Policy Engagement: Skills and Strategies was an AHRC-funded training course delivered by Goldsmiths, University of London on behalf of CHASE, the Consortium of the Humanities and the Arts South-east England on 25-26th September and 16 October 2015. It was organised by Dr Derval Tubridy.
Aimed at Doctoral Candidates and Early Career Researchers, this course gave participants an enhanced understanding of how public policy is developed and how research in the arts and humanities can influence and inform public policy.
Through a range of roundtable discussions with academics working in a broad range of the arts and humanities disciplines, non-HEI professionals working in the area of policy making and influence, and through action learning sets, participants learned how to develop skills for effective engagement with public policy developments. They also discovered how their research could be mobilised to impact on public policy and how to evidence that impact.
All the material from the course is available through this module, include video footage of all the presentations and discussions.
