For researchers in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences (AHSS) traditional mono-dimensional forms of research dissemination are increasingly expected to be accompanied by innovative cross disciplinary methods aimed at non-academic audiences. With a view to encouraging engagement with the local non-academic community as well as increasing impact with relevant public and private institutions, UCC prioritises the notion that the University is in the community, of the community and for the community. As a result researchers are encouraged to consider how their work might be disseminated in more accessible and digestible ways leading to greater impact with a wider audience. Mirroring this, through their teaching they aim to ensure our students are not just consumers of research throughout their learning careers but are creators, evaluators and communicators of knowledge as global citizens both in their area of expertise, but also more broadly as members of their local community.
