Project Details

Building Networks and Engagement for Social Impact

This project aims to establish, enhance and formalise EPL’s networks and partnerships, which are necessary to create social impact of research. Concurrently, it initiates two potential impact cases which build on and develop synergies across existing research, teaching, PD and KT projects. Hence, each individual item is part of an overarching strategic project to establish the departmental infrastructure and collaborative networks that are essential to long-term and sustained impact through KT. Each of the below items links directly to EPL’s Action Plan and EPL Review Panel recommendations for creating impact. The focus is on shaping conditions that are conducive to having impact, and in seeding potential impact case studies in anticipation of the next RAE. Impact strategy: 1. Establish the local and regional networks to develop partnerships that are needed for impact in schools and educational organizations, and policy planning, enactment and improvement. 2. Establish Research Impact Clusters in order to develop synergies across current research and teaching projects; and disseminate research-derived resources for application in these above networks, e.g. PD tenders, workshops, forums, briefs. 3. Develop and track actual impact. Summary of KT activities and products: 1. Informing policy change through policy briefs and video briefs released generally, but also strategically targeted to relevant stakeholders; 2. Informing practice through partnership network e-newsletters, annual school forums, and instructional materials that embed EPL research in professional development and tendered leader development projects; 3. Changing practice through partnership projects; 4. Seeding potential impact cases.
