Pathways to Excellence in Public Scholarship

Join colleagues for a series of panel presentations and workshops during the 2017-18 academic year designed to advance our collective understanding of the practices and assessment of public scholarship.

  • Getting to Yes! Essential Planning and Documentation Strategies for Early Career Faculty Teaching and Researching in and with Communities

    Date: Thursday, November 16th, 2017
    Time: 9:00 am - 10:30 am
    Location: Hine Hall 219

    Community engagement doesn’t have to be an area of teaching, research, and creative activity that waits until you get tenure. However, to advance successfully does call for alternative strategies involving how faculty plan for, document and communicate their work. Join us for a session that illuminates tips and strategies that early career faculty, including tenure line, clinical, and lecturers, can use to advocate for their work as community-engaged scholars.

    Presenters:  Pam Napier, Herron School of Art and Design, Katie Stanton-Nichols, Physical Education and Tourism Management, Mary F. Price, Center for Service and Learning

    Sponsors:  Faculty Learning Community on Public Scholarship, the Center for Service and Learning and Academic Affairs.

  • Developing a Strategy to Document your Community-Engaged Scholarship Using Research Metrics and Qualitative Evidence

    Date: Wednesday, January 17th, 2018
    Time: 12:00 - 1:30 pm
    Location: UL 1116

    In this workshop, we will equip faculty engaged in public scholarship and community-engaged scholarship with the strategies and tools to make your work count. A key element of co-producing with the community is ensuring that they have access to the resulting products and knowledge. We will demonstrate easy strategies achieving that goal, as well as ways to manager your digital identity, engage with your audiences, and gather evidence to support your project-specific and professional goals. The session will incorporate demonstration and discussion.

    Presenters: Heather Coates, Jere Odell

Series sponsors: Faculty Learning Community on Public Scholarship, Academic Affairs, Center for Service and Learning, Office of Community Engagement, and IUPUI Arts and Humanities Institute
