Community-Based Scholarship:
A Vehicle for Enhanced Research & Teaching

In conjunction with Embracing Community:
A Community Involvement Fair and Applied Research Forum

Lunch Forum: November 15, 2011

  • Are you interested in building meaningful and engaged research, scholarship, or creative work opportunities for yourself and your students?
  • Do students in your classes engage in community outreach either locally or globally?  If not, do you suspect this might enhance their learning experience?
  • How do community-based experiences impact learning outcomes?

campusFacilitated by Katie Kleinhesselink from Colorado Campus Compact, this event is intended to support faculty and scholars who are interested in learning more about how community based scholarship can enhance their research and teaching.

Participants will enhance their conceptual and practical knowledge on community based scholarship (CBS) as they come to:  

  • Appreciate CBS as a reciprocal and mutually beneficial pedagogy and research paradigm for students, faculty, and communities both locally and internationally
  • Understand the core components of an effective CBS course
  • Review and troubleshoot common challenges in CBS implementation
  • Network with likeminded faculty and learn about ongoing and potential professional opportunities for engaged scholarship
