Organized by: Research Impact Canada, the Conference Board and The Collaboration, SSHRC

Research Impact Canada, the Conference Board have partnered with The Collaborative, a SSHRC funded network dedicated to helping educators foster a better culture around SSH knowledge and skills to offer a new collaborative platform for educators in K12 through PSE. The premise of the project is that students, graduates, researchers, and educators in SSH disciplines benefit from applied skills training, cross-sectoral collaborations, and knowledge sharing. Likewise, collaboration and knowledge sharing skills help extend the reach, engagement, and impact of SSH research and activities. But the models of impact available do not do justice to the nature and diversity of activities in which engagement and knowledge mobilization objectives can be achieved. This panel will offer draw upon the expertise of the speakers and to identify best practices, resources, and next steps for improving our understanding of impact in the social sciences.
