From big data to how to involve communities and stakeholders in the process, BCM curated brief talks and breakout groups to share understandings for impact in civic media.

Boston Civic Media convened an intimate gathering of faculty and researchers to share approaches for understanding impact in civic media - from randomized controlled trials to qualitative evaluation to artistic research methods. The workshop explored the variety of ways in which people are responding to the increased need to demonstrate the impact of media interventions, including how we evaluate the impact of research, practice, and classroom-community partnerships. The goal of the conversations and exercises of the day is to integrate our findings into undergraduate education. Read the recap notes here.
