SDDU workshop: ‘Envisage your impact’

The workshop will help you to begin the process of developing an understanding of the sorts of impact your research could have. The starting point for this thinking will be your own motivations and values, i.e. what impact do you want to have? Envisioning your impact is an essential first step before starting to think of actions or activities that may generate this impact. This process should also help you to decide how you may evaluate that the impact you want to achieve has occurred. The session will point you at resources and support available to you at the university and beyond that will help you on your journey to impact.
