Engagement wheel launched at national conference

GCU's Engagement Wheel

An online tool designed to illustrate the many ways GCU is engaging for the common good will be launched at the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement’s annual conference.

Members of GCU’s Community and Public Engagement Steering Group will join a team from the University of the West of England to co-deliver a workshop on visualising engagement on Wednesday, 27 November.

GCU's Engagement Wheel – which is now live on the University’s home page – gives an overview of the University’s many activities and supports users in navigating through the six strands of engagement: research, community, business, international, schools and colleges and public.

It is based on the engagement mapping that has been done by the University’s six Community and Public Engagement fellows over the past year.

Susan Grant, Community and Public Engagement Coordinator, said:“We welcome input from stakeholders in each of the areas in keeping the content relevant and the links up to date.”

Susan will present the wheel at the NCCPE’s annual Engage conference with School of Engineering and Built Environment Fellow Dr Morag Fergusson. The Wheel’s design was initiated by GCU students from Computing and Creative Technologies.

Glasgow School for Business and Society Fellow Dr Liz Frondigoun and School of Health and Life Sciences Fellow Karen Roome will also have their work showcased at the event.

Susan said: “We are delighted to be given this opportunity to present our work at what is the UK’s leading academic conference in this field. We are looking forward to working with colleagues from the University of the West of England, who have a great track record in producing innovative work in this area.”
