2:00 - 3:00 p.m. Eastern
This event is offered by the National Center for Faculty Development and Diversity, an independent professional development, training, and mentoring community for faculty members, postdocs, and graduate students.
Drawing on studies of exemplar, highly impactful engaged scholars, University of Maryland's KerryAnn O'Meara, 2020 President of the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE), shares examples of high impact community-engaged scholarship and strategies adopted by engaged scholars to succeed in reward systems that are not yet fully inclusive of this work. Participants will consider ways in which projects with community partners might be designed to document expertise or knowledge drawn on, impact, and significance.
