Following today’s Google+ hangout on Research Impact and Public Engagement for Career Success (which you can watch again here), I’ve pulled together a few links and tips on the questions I discussed.
Impact and Early Career Researchers – my PhD Life guide on Impact and ECRs in the context of REF (2014, but with some ongoing applicability as we head towards the next REF; confused about the REF? My ECR guide is here). This write-up of a talk at Warwick is also highly illustrative on some of the issues around PE/impact. More recently, I spoke about the changing responses of ECRs towards impact in my talk about the REF.
Impact in the humanities – I highlighted the Celebrating Dickens project as a good example of an impact project that is interdisciplinary, uses multiple digital channels, and drew on a range of expert advice. ECRs might find this case study of an ECR working in an impact role helpful. “Apps and maps” is also a subsection of some of my work on Dickens and the bicentenary, and in this post I pulled together a range of digital Dickens projects.
Getting started as an ECR – a post I wrote previously about tips for ECRs getting started on public engagement.
Digital media – an interview I did last year on the changing culture of digital academia, including some reflections on the relationship between public engagement and digital media.
I will also be blogging more about ECR interviews, public engagement in the humanities, and any other issues that come up via the twitter feed.
