In November and December 2017, we ran two impact workshops, ‘Planning For Impact’ and ‘Gathering Evidence of Impact After the Fact Workshop’. This was in recognition that people might come to discussions of their project’s impact at different points in the life cycle.
These were attended by a variety of researchers and academics from the Faculty of Art, Design and Media, who benefitted from our discussions and practical exercises, such as mapping out the resources and stakeholders when considering impact. In our second workshop we dealt more squarely with ways of gathering evidence of impact from project resources and activities, such as social media activity.
As well as directly setting people on to trains of thought regarding their work, we hope to establish relationships with colleagues as their projects unfold and require consideration regarding their impact agenda.
