(S1E2) Meet the Culturositists: Introducing Ged Hall and Research Impact
Play • 21 min

In our weekly Research Culture Uncovered conversations we are asking what is Research Culture and why does it matter? This episode is part of Season 1, where we get to meet the hosts in a bit more detail before they go on to host seasons on their specialist topic. In this episode your host Emma Spary is joined by Dr Ged Hall.

Ged Hall is an Academic Development Consultant at the University of Leeds, leading our Research Impact provision. He is passionate about working with researchers to embed a culture of impact across the institution. He has designed, and delivers, our fantastic Building Impact Momentum programme and supports the University Impact Network. You can connect to Ged via LinkedIn or Twitter (@HallGed).

I ask Ged what he thinks the biggest challenges are for researchers, what we do well at Leeds, where he thinks we can improve and what he hopes to see in the future. His main messages include:

  • The differences in how we define research impact
  • Impact taking many forms and the need for researchers to define what their impact looks like
  • Once identified, how do you make it happen?
  • How cohort based programmes can play a role in creating an impact culture
  • How time and resource can be barriers to achieving impact
