Research Impact & engagement
Researchers and academics are increasingly required to demonstrate that their research has impact – that it is engaging audiences and making a difference to society in some way.
Graduate researchers and early career academics can get a head start on this by learning some tools and tips for communicating research through online media (such as Twitter, YouTube, ResearchGate, Slideshare, blogging, infographics); and finding research in your discipline that is trending by using Altmetrics.
This session will introduce basic principles of knowledge translation, explore the pros and cons of Altmetrics, and get you thinking about audience engagement and research impact early on.
