Federation For The Humanities And Social Sciences - Webinar for members

Time: 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Date: Oct 26, 2017
Location: Online
We invite you to join us for an interactive webinar on how scholars in the humanities and social sciences are approaching the challenge of impact assessment. The session will feature David Phipps, Executive Director, Research & Innovation Services, York University, who was an advisor on the Federation’s Impacts Project and is one of Canada’s leading knowledge-mobilization proponents. His co-presenter will be Federation Policy Analyst Peter Severinson, lead author of the Federation’s latest report on impact assessment.
Across Canada and around the world, researchers are increasingly being asked to assess and articulate the impacts of their work. But to what extent are such things truly measurable? What are the challenges to presenting a clear picture of the impacts of scholarship? And what approaches are available to researchers in the humanities and social sciences in particular to achieve, assess and communicate impacts?
