Engaged Scholarship in the Field, at Home, and Abroad (Scholarly Talk)

Mon, 22 Feb 2016 12:30 PM - 2:00 PM

Location:  Rose Library room 5211; lunch will be provided.


Each year scholars from across the country gather at the Engagement Scholarship Consortium Conference to discuss successes, challenges, and benefits of engaged learning in all disciplines and student groups. As an “engaged university,” JMU was well represented at this conference this year.  This event highlights JMU scholars who presented at that conference. Speakers from three disciplines will offer perspectives on engaged teaching and scholarship. Carole Nash discusses “The Public in Public Archeology: Citizen Science and Engagement” and Bradley Striebig will present “Engaging Hope." Finally, Craig Shealy will share “Cultivating Globally Sustainable Self, Engaged Scholarship on Transformative Teaching, Training, and Learning.”

Faculty participants will make progress toward these scholarship outcomes:

  • Appreciating the diverse forms, purposes, and communication modes of scholarship in higher education, and
  • Practicing the integration of scholarship with teaching and other career aspirations.

Faculty participants will make progress toward these program outcomes:

  • Gaining insight into engaged teaching and scholarship strategies in a variety of disciplines, and
  • Exploring various examples of engaged scholarship that might inspire their own engagement initiatives.
