RRBM Webinar: Scholarly Impact – Finding the Holy Grail

Speaker: Professor Herman Aguinis


November 18, 2020, 9.30 am (Eastern time) / 2.30 pm (London time)

The desire to have an impact on different stakeholders including researchers, students, and society at large is a long-term aspiration of most academics—a sort of search of the “Holy Grail.” What is scholarly impact? How should we measure it? How can we enhance the impact of our research and teaching activities? The goal of this webinar is to address these questions by describing the latest research and using an interactive format. The webinar will be of interest to researchers and educators aiming to enhance the impact of their work.

Wednesday, 18 November 2020 at 9.30 am (Eastern) / 2.30 pm (London) / 8.00 pm (Delhi). The seminar is scheduled for 90 minutes, including plenty of opportunity for Q&A.
