Benefit of this resource and how to make the best use of it

This tool has been developed to help anyone with an interest in educational/academic development to think about how and where their work has impact. You might use it to plan, evaluate or think more generally about the impact of an educational development activity. It draws on the work of Bamber (2013) to help ‘evidence the value’ of learning and teaching development activities/projects/interventions by offering suggestions for where you might locate specific examples of evidence in practice. To use this tool, begin by identifying a particular project, intervention or general activity that requires analysis of impact. Each of the following pages starts with a question that should prompt you to think about potential forms of evidence. This evidence may be very familiar to you or it may be something you have not considered to date. To help you answer the question, you are provided with a list of potential examples. Having reviewed that information, your next step is to draft your thinking in the box provided. You may also wish to refer to the recommended supplementary articles available via the MORE INFORMATION link on the top right of your screen. Please note that if a question and associated examples does not resonate with you, move on to the next question. At the end of the process, you can export your work to a Word document for further elaboration as needed.
