    Title: How to Define and Measure Scholarly Impact: Implications for Educators, Researchers, and Administrators


    Session Description:


    The desire to have an impact on different stakeholders including researchers, students, and society at large is a long-term aspiration of most academics. Also, scholarly impact is one of the strongest currencies in the Academy. But, what is scholarly impact? How should we measure it? How can we enhance the impact of our research and teaching activities? The goal of this webinar is to address these questions by describing the latest research and using an interactive format. The webinar will be of interest to researchers and educators aiming to enhance their impact and university administrators aiming to understand how to define, measure, and reward impact.
