Broader Impacts/Research Impacts Seminars – February/March

The Training Team from ARIS will conduct five interactive virtual sessions with strategies for addressing not only NSF’s broader impacts criteria but research impacts, broadly. 

  • Session 1: Broader Impacts 101 (Feb. 3 @ 9-11am) - This activity-based workshop will cover the history of the BI criterion, provide strategies for conceptualizing, developing, implementing, and evaluating BI activities, and share tips on leveraging existing resources and establishing robust partnerships to build your “BI identity.”
  • Session 2: Broader Impact Evaluation/Broadening Participation (Feb. 17 @ 9-11am) - This session will explore broadening participation activities, why they are a priority for the NSF, and how to plan, implement, and assess them successfully. Several specific examples will be presented and discussed.
  • Session 3: NSF CAREER Awards (March 3 @ 9-11am) - This session will focus on strategies for developing a competitive NSF CAREER Award, with emphasis on the broader impacts and education plan.
  • Session 4: Broader Impacts Partnerships (March 17 @ 9-11am) - This session will explore aspects such as where do you go to find a good BI partner? What are the elements of a successful partnership? And how can you ensure that the relationship is mutually beneficial for both members of the partnership? These and other questions will be explored in this interactive session.
  • Session 5: Broader Impacts Identity (March 31 @ 9-11am) - This interactive workshop will introduce the concept of a broader impacts identity and walk investigators through a process for starting to define BI identity. While any researcher is likely to benefit from this workshop, it is particularly relevant to early-career researchers.
