Scholarship of Engagement: Strategies for Advancing Your Locally and Globally Community Engaged Teaching and Research
April 17, 2020
8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Marshal Student Center
Do you work with a global or local community -its people, organizations, agencies, assets - as part of your teaching or research? Do you have evidence of impact for students or the community? Whether you are teaching a high impact practice course (e.g., service-learning, study abroad, capstone, first year experience, volunteerism) or facilitating a project or program that addresses a real-life issue in society, we as scholars are interested in answering the question "what impact did it have?" and "how might I improve?" The goal of this session is to identify the intended outcomes, particularly within a global framework for our students, then develop a plan to measure the impact in ways that can lead to scholarship and evidence that can be used for improvement. Session participants will come away with civic/global outcome statements that directly relate to their course or program and will be able to schedule a one-on-one session with the expert.
