Arts Humanities and Social Sciences Research


Recognising that there can be an inherent complementarity between impact projects and the widening participation and schools outreach initiatives adopted by faculties and departments, across the Schools of Arts and Humanities and Humanities and Social Sciences, this sessions brings together expertise from the Schools’ impact and access teams to deliver an interactive workshop designed to introduce researchers to how to design and deliver their outreach activities to not only accord with the agenda set by the Office for Students but to generate research impact.

Following an introduction from the Impact Facilitator, which will include advice on best-practice impact strategies and evidence gathering that are central to realising meaningful impact outcomes for select beneficiaries, Simon Ravenscroft of the University’s Admissions Office will give an overview of the outreach landscape and University priorities in this area. The final portion of the session will be provided by Becky Taylor from the Admissions Office, a former second-level teacher, who will share insights into the methods and approaches to outreach that are best received by teachers and students in the sector.

There will be an opportunity for researchers to discuss their own practices in this area with the training team and colleagues.

All members of the research community are welcome.  However, this session is not intended to address the development of Impact Case Studies for REF 2021; researchers interested in the particulars of that aspect of impact should contact their assigned REF Impact Coordinator.

This session is now complete but if you would be interested in attending a similar event in Easter term, please get in touch with the Arts and Humanities Impact Facilitator:
