Community Engagement As Scholarship Workshop
Friday, February 11, 2011
8:30 AM - 12:00 PM
Kelley Presentation Room
Fairfield University faculty and staff are invited to participate in an engaging workshop that will build on the discussions inspired by Dr. Patti Clayton's keynote address on February 10 (3:30-5:00pm, Gonzaga Auditorium). Participants will be challenged to think critically about their relationship to community engagement as scholarship and to consider the various entry points as well as opportunities to advance the work. All faculty and staff interested in this work are encouraged to attend regardless of your level of experience or knowledge of community-engaged scholarship. Key take-aways for each participant include: begin to situate yourself in relationship to CES, outline ideas for your own scholarship in this area, and get tips on how to articulate CES as part of your portfolio of scholarly work (many are already doing CES but don't even realize it); and contribute to the development of a case statement for CES at Fairfield University. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. All participants are strongly encouraged to read the recommended article listed below in preparation for the workshop.
