The Centre for Policing Research and Learning’s (CPRL) Festival of Impact will take place at the Open University’s campus in Walton Hall, Milton Keynes on Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 September 2022 with opportunity for an overnight stay and dinner on the Wednesday evening.
The Festival of Impact will showcase and celebrate the strength of the academic-police partnership, both in terms of its outputs and outcomes for policing and academia and also the lessons learned from such a collaboration. Participating in this exciting event is an opportunity to hear about and discuss the value of the synergies between research, learning, education and knowledge into practice and talk to many of the experts involved.
The programme will also enable you to:
This will be achieved through a mix of speakers, workshop sessions, interactive exercises and demonstrations. You might, for example, be interested in hearing about the ongoing research and early impacts from the Centre’s research around professionalisation. Are you intrigued about the experiences of some of our past Senior Practitioner Fellows or wish to hear about the realities of doing a PhD? Would you like to discuss how to create CPD products, based on some of our showcase learning materials already being used in forces? The event will also provide the opportunity to network with police and academic colleagues from across the partnership with an event dinner.
Programme details will be announced shortly.
