Juxtaposing Academic Research Outputs and Impact Case Studies: the benefits of using similar methods
This session provides a strategic overview of the similarities between academic research outputs and impact case studies, and discusses how (and why) academics can and should draft impact ideas, write case studies, and communicate with stakeholders drawing on the skills they already have. It demonstrates to research impact staff how to enhance impact capability and resilience and provide better support to academics in a changing and challenging research management sector.
The presenter will highlight the comparative skills academics can use to produce both research outputs and research impact simultaneously, and discuss her experience with this approach at Brunel. In the changing landscape of higher education research expectations and roles of research support staff, this session steers away from the myth that impact is an additional task which needs to be completed at the end of a project and which requires researchers to develop an entirely new set of skills, towards an understanding of how researchers can use the methods they already know.
The presentation and interactive table discussion equips delegates with the knowledge needed for this approach and will enable them to support their institution more effectively in the creation of successful research impact trajectories and implementation of impact strategies.
