RMIT's Centre for Applied Social Research presents this special panel discussion on taking your research to the public and making an impact.
Producing a research report, book or journal article is all well and good, but often this isn’t enough to make an impact outside academia. We’ve asked Professor Patricia Rogers, BetterEvaluation Director, and a panel of senior researchers to discuss how they’ve gone beyond the publication to have their research talked about and listened to, and what frustrations this sometimes entails.
Dr Guy Johnson is Deputy Director of CASR and an expert on homelessness. His work on the Street to Home and Journey to Social Inclusion (J2SI) projects have been widely disseminated in the media.
Professor Patricia Rogers is a Professor of Public Sector Evaluation and the Director of BetterEvaluation, a research project and website that contributes to building and sharing knowledge of evaluation practices.
Professor Michael Buxton, Centre for Urban Research, is a leading expert in peri-urban growth with over a decade’s experience in government as a planning manager. He is frequently called upon by the media to provide expert comment on planning issues.
Associate Professor Kim Humphery, Director, CASR
