BU produced tools for diversity, a Method Deck to Diversity and the film, RUFUS STONE contribute greatly to the success of impact efforts at the University.

“It is important to remember that impact is not always a moment in the sun, then yesterday’s news”.

 Bournemouth University colleagues Kip Jones and Lee-Ann Fenge discuss the “long tail” of meaningful community impact and the outputs needed to get there, featured from today in the LSE Impact of Social Science Blog.

The ’long tail’ of research impact is engendered by innovative dissemination tools and meaningful community engagement”, an article reported in the LSE Impact Blog, discusses the involvement of Jones and Fenge in almost a decade-and-a-half of research at Bournemouth University on older LGBT citizens in Britain. In addition to in-depth research, their efforts included producing creative outputs alongside traditional publications. Using these tools, they have engaged community partners not only through workshops and trainings, but also as participant researchers and members of an Advisory Committee.

The LSE Impact Blog refers to Fenge & Jones’ longer output published in the Qualitative Research Journal. A draft of the original journal article, Meaningful dissemination produces the ‘long tail’ that engenders community impact” can be downloaded here.
