York's Professor Kiran Trehan, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Partnerships and Engagement, will chair a discussion of new and innovative approaches to engagement influence in an upcoming webinar.
The notion of ‘engaged scholarship’ has become popular as a means of pursuing research that is relevant as well as rigorous. But what does the term actually mean?
How can the approach be implemented? What difference does it make, and to whom? Academics will have been exercised by such questions in their quest to demonstrate ‘impact’ in the recent Research Excellence Framework exercise.
Practitioners too have an interest in such issues as they look for knowledge and insights that might help them address their day-to-day concerns. ‘Engaged scholarship’ is a conscious attempt to link interests of academics and practitioners; but the principles and practice that inform such an approach are far from clear. This webinar explores the challenges and opportunities of engaged scholarship and provide some examples of it in action as part of our Social Sciences Enterprise Scheme (SESS), launching this month.
