I have attended workshops in science education (through the British Ecological Society and the National Science Learning Centre) and family-friendly learning (with the Oxford University Museum of Natural History). I've also gained lots of experience of informal education and outreach through my involvement in historical reenactment, which regularly involves talking to adults and children about Anglo-Saxon and Viking life, warfare and craft at public events and museums (as well as the occasional school visit).
