Dialogue in Public Engagement

  • Patricia Hart (Participant)

Activity: Participating in or organising an event typesProfessional Development and Training

Description

Individuals doing public engagement or knowledge exchange sometimes end up ‘talking at’ people rather than engaging in a genuinely two-way conversation. With the best will in the world, the skills and insights needed to empathise with another’s perspective, to make it safe for people to speak openly, to hear what others have to say, and to plan processes that really can enhance mutual understanding, are sometimes underdeveloped. Dialogue has proved a powerful approach to communication in public engagement, knowledge exchange and other areas; this course gives relevant practical guidance on how to go about it.
