Achieving Impact in Research; a guide for the purposes of gaining research funding and reporting achieved impact for the Research Excellenc Framework (REF)

Achieving Impact in Research; a guide for the purposes of gaining research funding and reporting achieved impact for the Research Excellenc Framework (REF) | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
This addition to the "Success in Research" series addresses the importance of understanding and achieving impact for the purposes of gaining research funding and reporting achieved impact for the Research Excellence Framework (REF). The book includes contributions from researchers and researcher developers who feel that impact is ill-defined and poorly understood despite its prevalence in policy documents, websites and institutional activities. This succinct and cohesive text draws on the expert contributors' collective research practice, knowledge and experience. Using a variety of examples, boxed activities and highlighted reflection points, this practical guide covers the following key areas: - The meaning of impact in relation to research - How the Impact Agenda fits with attitudes and ethics that motivate research - The different characterisations of research impact and when impact is apparent - How impact can be planned into proposals, evaluated and evidenced - The skills needed to be an impactful researcher - How impact can be supported through Knowledge Exchange and effective partnerships Table of contents: What is the meaning of impact in relation to research and why does it matter? A view from inside academia Colin Chandler What is the meaning of the Impact Agenda - is it a repackaged or a new entity? Views from inside the Research Councils Sophie Payne-Gifford How does the Impact Agenda fit with attitudes and ethics that motivate research? Jennifer Chubb What are the different characteristics of research impact? Jo Lakey, Geoff Rodgers and Rosa Scoble When might research impact be apparent? Christopher Wood How can impact be planned into research proposals? Rob Daley and Sara Shinton How can impact evaluation be planned? Tony Bromley and André de Campos How can impact be evidenced: practical methods? Tony Bromley What skills are needed to be an impactful researcher? Jennifer Chubb How can knowledge exchange support the development of impact through partnerships and university infrastructures? Andy Jackson How can you become an impactful researcher?

Remove Any Image Background With Clipping Magic | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
Clipping Magic is a free web app for quickly and easily removing image backgrounds.

When using images for PowerPoint presentations, blog posts and other projects, one may require removing their background so that they may blend in with the colors of your presentation slide, blog or canvas.  However, removing a background image isn’t easy and being a PRO at PhotoShop is not possible for everyone.

I'm going to rebadge this as "models" of learning /instruction as opposed to theories - which would suggest a hypothesis of how learning occurs

Mother's milk customized to sex of the baby

Mother's milk customized to sex of the baby | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
“Mothers may say they don't care whether they have a son or a daughter, but their breast milk says otherwise.”"Mothers are producing different biological recipes for sons and daughters," says Katie Hinde, an evolutionary biologist at Harvard University. Studies in humans, monkeys and other mammals have found a variety of differences in both the content and the quantity of milk produced.One common theme: baby boys often get milk that is richer in fat or protein — and thus energy — while baby girls often get more milk.There are a lot of theories as to why this happens, says Hinde, who presented her findings at the American Association for the Advancement of Science's annual meeting.Rhesus monkeys, for instance, tend to produce more calcium in the milk they feed to daughters who inherit social status from their mothers."It could be adaptive in that it allows mothers to give more milk to daughters which is going to accelerate their develop and allow them to begin reproducing at early ages," says Hinde.Males don't need to reach sexual maturity as quickly as females because the only limit on how often they reproduce is how many females they can win over. "While the food aspects of milk to some extent are replicated in formula, the immunological factors and medicine of milk are not and the hormonal signals are not," she says.Getting a better understanding of how milk is personalized for specific infants will also help hospitals find better matches for breast milk donated to help nourish sick and premature infants in neo natal units, she adds.

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet

5 Creative Uses Of PowerPoint Presentations You Haven’t Explored Yet | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
Death by PowerPoint is a popular term. It’s unfair that PowerPoint gets the stick as there are more than a few presentation tools around. As anyone who has taken the pains to make a memorable PowerPoint presentation will tell you – the secret of the steak is in the sizzle. The sizzle also comes and stops at creativity. If you have creativity by your side, you can use PowerPoint as your canvas.

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought | Flipped Out | Scoop.it
"Recently on westXdesign–via scoopit–we found an interesting graphic about naming 12 principles of collaboration. Collaboration is among the most-often promoted fluencies of 21st century learning (along with creativity and communication). However, there are very few frameworks or models that exist to support the development of better collaboration forms. As it is, in many K-12 learning environments, collaboration is limited to teacher-created grouping, or more scattered project-based learning groups that converge on a single project and thus a single goal. The following principles of collaboration (seemingly created for businesses but clearly applicable to learning) push that idea a bit further–with some important emphases on the individual, including:"

12 Powerful New Ideas For 21st Century Learning

12 Powerful New Ideas For 21st Century Learning | Flipped Out | Scoop.it

"How we learn is changing in response to a changing environment, from fluid digital environments to constant access to information, incredible peer networks to learning simulations, 21st century learning is teeming with possible learning pathways. So it seemed appropriate to take a look at a handful of these new approaches–not so much formal learning approaches such as project-based learning or mobile learning, but rather some of the platforms and tools themselves. The immediate benefit is to take inventory in what’s available now. But picture, we can kind of trace a line through these emerging approaches to get an idea of where learning is headed, and what we might expect in the next 3-5 years as the blistering pace of changes continue–and how the 'crowd' will be a part of it all."
