This month’s Future of Higher Education Forum will cover “Measuring and Communicating Your Research Impact.”The session will take place Tuesday, Nov. 27, from 9 to 11 a.m. in Health and Human Services Building Room 1711.
Dr. Beau Case, dean of University Libraries and director of the UT Press, and Dr. Christopher D. Ingersoll, vice provost for health affairs and dean of the College of Health and Human Services, will lead the forum.
They will discuss measuring and communicating research as it relates to journal, author and article impact. In addition, they will demonstrate how to use these measures while seeking tenure and promotions.“Research plays a vital role in the academic life of most faculty members. This session is designed to show faculty how to harness that hard work, how to effectively talk and write about it, and how to leverage that work when it comes to promotions and tenure,” said Dr. Amy Thompson, interim associate vice provost of faculty affairs and professor of public health.
The Future of Higher Education Forums are coordinated by the Office of the Provost in collaboration with the Office of Diversity and Inclusion and the University Teaching Center.
