Literature Review/Research Design: Developing a College-Based, Evidence Informed R&D Impact Assessment Framework (Niagara College/Centennial College December 2007)

slide3

R&D Impact Assessment Study: March 2008

Proof of Concept to test conclusions of literature review:

  • Case Study Research Design
  • Logic Model Evaluation Framework
  • 11-dimension impact typology (Godin & Dore 2004)

Qualitative, simple approach; minimum of assumptions

methodology case study
Methodology – Case Study
  • Case study research method (Yin 1994/2003)
    • Recognized social science research method
    • Design allows for valid generalizations based on a hypothesis/propositions
  • Not business school or clinical case study
  • Salter & Martin 2001

Organizing Framework

  • Inputs

  • Impacts

Methodology – Impact Typology

Godin & Doré (2004)

11-dimension typology of impacts of research

data collection
Data Collection
  • Telephone interviews – all stakeholders
  • Review of internal/external documents
  • Bibliometric analysis
  • Unit of Analysis
    • A discrete research project over a 10-year period
    • Including research, development, knowledge/technology transfer activities: Research & Related Activities
results case study method
Results - Case study method
  • Effective approach
  • Identified intended/unintended results
  • Labour intensive ~ $40-$50k/200-250 hours
  • Apply satisficing
    • Limit interviews/use surveys
  • Identify all stakeholders and activities to build case history

PhillipsKPA 2006

results logic model
Results – Logic Model
  • Useful for separating inputs, activities, outputs and impacts
  • Nature of RRA (causality, attribution, interactions)
  • All stakeholders influence impacts
  • Strict logic model probably not suitable: too linear - serves as model for an organizing framework that better reflects complexity of interaction
  • Separate performer from users (outcomes/impacts)
slide10

Results – Impact Typology

  • Compelling matrix for standardizing impacts across all types of RRA
  • Requires adaptation/refinement
  • Confirmed presence/absence of impact dimension/sub dimensions; not significance, frequency, magnitude
  • Impacts based on perceptions of stakeholders
conclusions
Simple method provides qualitative evaluation of impacts of RRA that reflect broader expectations

Further refine approach with additional case studies

Impacts not attributable to single stakeholder (e.g. performers) but to entire network Build a portfolio of case studies for conclusions about impacts

Need to consider complete RRA (network): all stakeholders

Conclusions
