Diane Doberneck workshop and consultations on Community-Engaged Scholarship

Community-Engaged Scholarship: How to Create, Define, and Publish

Dr. Diane Doberneck, Michigan State University, National Collaborative for the Study of University Engagement

Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 8:30 – 11:00 AM,

Tate Student Center, Room 141

This presentation, free and open to all members of the campus community, will focus on how to conceptualize, design, implement, and publish research on service-learning and community-engaged scholarship. Dr. Doberneck will cover how to situate this research in the broader scholarly context, ways in which community-engaged scholarship differs from conventional research, how to develop different types of publishable manuscripts, and how to find appropriate venues for publishing, with examples from within and across disciplines.

Follow-up Consultations available: Have a question, want feedback, or need support in designing or writing your community-engaged scholarship? Diane will also provide individual consultation for conceptualizing research and scholarship (at any stage) for half-hour time slots on Wednesday afternoon. Consultations will take place at the Office of Service-Learning rear annex, 1242 ½ S. Lumpkin St.
