    Introduction to Research and Innovation Impact Assessment
    Description This introductory session aims to develop a shared understanding and common language about research and innovation impact assessment (RIIA) among stakeholders of the research and innovation ecosystem. Growing demand around the world requires researchers and others to effectively ‘think’ about and assess impact and demonstrate their contributions to broader health, social and economic benefits. Our goal is to increase participants’ knowledge of RIIA, introduce them to some of the frameworks, methods, and common ‘tools’ used in RIIA and highlight the importance of communicating impacts to inform practice and policy decisions to ultimately benefit the public. Who will benefit? This introductory session is relevant for several stakeholders in the research and innovation system, including trainees, researchers, program managers, policy makers, practitioners, research funders, knowledge translators and evaluators. What will participants in the course gain? Participants will be introduced to the theoretical background of RIIA as well as its practical applications. Learning Outcomes The Introduction to RIIA session provides participants with increased knowledge of how to plan, assess communicate and optimize research and innovation impact. Participants will learn the why, what, who, and how of RIIA: • Why assess impact? Develop an understanding of the rationale for and value of planning, assessing, communicating and optimizing research and innovation impact. • What is meant by “impact”? Learn the value of an impact framework and pathways to highlight what is meant by “impact” within a jurisdiction, organization or specific program. • Who needs to know about impact? Understand the importance of identifying key stakeholders for the RIIA and understanding their information needs. • How is a research impact assessment conducted? Learn about a six-block approach for RIIA that guides the planning, implementation and communication of RIIA and its findings. Content o Overview of the Discipline of Research and Innovation Impact Assessment (RIIA) o Introduction to Impact Frameworks for RIIA o Six Blocks of RIIA o Assessing and Communicating Impact

    Introduction to NVivo 12 for Windows
    Introduction to NVivo 12 for Windows This one day course will walk you through the basics of NVivo 12 for Windows and provide you with enough information to get you started in your own project. In this course we will: • discuss participant goals, provide an overview of NVivo and learn the NVivo workspace • learn how to create a new project in NVivo using supplied sample data • import and organize documents and other file formats (e.g., PDF, datasets) • create and learn how to manage coding structures, practice coding and learn how the coding can be displayed and exported • create memos and annotations to reflect on the data and analysis process • review and practice word frequency and text search queries • explore the data by using comparison and explore diagrams • discuss good housekeeping and tips for working in teams, learning resources and other topics that vary with time and participant interest This full-day hand-on workshop is targeted for NVivo beginners on the Windows platform. It will walk you through the basics of NVivo and provide you with enough information to get you started in your own project. NVivo 12 for Windows will be available at computer workstations or participants may bring their own laptops with NVivo 12 already installed.

    Essentials of qualitative interviewing
    The purpose of this interview is to learn more about how to conduct the kinds of interviews that are used in qualitative research. Topics to be discussed will include standpoint of the interviewer; links between standpoint, research questions and design; reflexivity; deciding whom to interview as it relates to data adequacy; modes of interviewing; interviewing individuals from vulnerable populations; use of shadowed data; types of interviews; transforming interview data into transcripts, and ethical issues in interviewing

    Mixed and Multi Methods Designs
    In this session we will discuss a basic overview of mixed and multi method designs (both simultaneous and sequential), and how each can be used to address complex research questions. We will explore studies with both quantitative and qualitative primary designs and discuss how the addition of supplementary data collection strategies not typically found within the primary design can lead to a more robust answer to the research question.
