YAS researchers and professionals are hosting workshops in primary schools across the Scotland to help children understand how research becomes headline news.
The workshops are a part of Rewrite the Headlines, a competition which encourages students to critically evaluate information they come across in the media. It’s being run by the academics and researchers behind Research the Headlines, a blog created by members of the RSE Young Academy of Scotland which discusses research and the media.
YAS member Andrew Timming is running a workshop on "The (Potential) Benefits of Employee Voice" at the Scottish Universities Insight Institute at Strathclyde University as part of their Strengthening Democracy at Work and in our Communities programme. It is a knowledge transfer event, as opposed to an academic event. Participants will be discussing how employee voice benefits organisations, individuals and society. The workshop will take place on Tuesday 16 July.
