The Tracking Digital Impact (TDI) project ran during 2012 and was one of nine partnership projects funded by the JISC Business and Community Engagement Programme as part of a portfolio entitled "Embedding Impact Analysis in Research Using BCE Practitioners". The initiative was facilitated by the National Coordinating Centre for Public Engagement (NCCPE). The TDI project was led by Kent McClymont (University of Exeter) in partnership with a number of UK and International academics, including Dr. Elizabeth Tait (RGU). The project explored the types of digital engagement that are currently in use and how they are monitored. The project assessed the BCE skills - both digital-focused and traditional - that were available in the partner institutions, and set out to share and embed these across all partners. The project aimed to develop new standards and processes that could form a set of guidelines for implementing effective monitoring procedures for projects undertaking public, business and community engagement through digital technologies. The guidelines were intended to embed digital engagement practices within researcher-led activities, which could conform to institutional level policies through a uniform approach.
