CAISE Convening on Broader Impacts and ISE Front‐End Report

November 19th, 2013 | RESEARCH

The analysis contained in this report was prepared for the CAISE Convening on Broader Impacts & ISE. The report summarizes interviews with researchers in STEM subjects who were asked about: 1) their perceptions about broader impacts, 2) the planning and process that researchers undertake for broader impacts activities, 3) the resources and supports that currently exist and that researchers would like to exist for broader impacts activities, and 4) how the informal science education field might "market" itself as a potential place to find partners or venues for doing broader impacts activities. This undertaking should not be considered research, but an exercise intended to provide insights that could influence the outcomes of the convening.
