Presenter: Dr Cameron Neylon, Media, Creative Arts and Social Enquiry, Curtin University.  

Evaluating research responsibly, efficiently and effectively is increasingly challenging. While the availability of data and tools has expanded, the transparency, flexibility, and contextual relevance of these can be limiting. At the same time the need for efficiency and speed in research evaluation is increasing. In turn these requirements have led to increasing antagonism from researchers themselves towards evaluation.

This workshop will confront these issues head-on. We will use the SCOPE model developed by INORMS Research Evaluation Working Group to support responsible evaluation to address these issues and provide a framework for successfully engaging stakeholders. Working with new data sources and techniques we will show both the potential power of data-driven approaches and the dangers and pitfalls associated with them.
