Definition of education scholarship
Medical and health professions educators, like other academics, are asked to ‘demonstrate the impact’ of their work. This is also known as the impact agenda, as institutions “attemp[t] to impose accountability on academics for the public funding of research” (Holbrook, 2017).
In order to demonstrate impact, one must first be able to answer: what is impact?
