In this event, IOE Impact Fellows will recount stories about the rewarding experiences and the challenges they had to overcome as they exchanged knowledge and attempted to make a unique contribute to society.

They have tackled a range of issues as varied as learning loss and learning disruption; grammar schools and inequalities; autism and employment; teacher training; US religion and politics; healthy ageing and the environment, among others. From education to social sciences, health and STEM, there is something of interest to everyone, no matter which research area you work on.

For the purposes of this session, fellows were divided into two groups: one will share a sneak peak into their creative outputs and achievements, inspiring us with examples of the engagement activities they have successfully carried out this summer, funded by the scheme. Another will discuss their views on hot topics around research impact, informed by the content and skills developed during the fellowships' workshops, which focused on storytelling, media, policy, co-creation and much more.

This session will be particular interest to all researchers and professionals who wish to find out more about embedding engagement and impact in their projects, as well as IOE doctoral candidates and early career staff considering whether to participate in future cohorts of the Fellowship.
