Making OSG's regional and national leadership explicit
Oregon Sea Grant is well known for its expertise in a number of subject areas - or rather its catalyzing power.

Much of this potential is quiet and cloaked under an organizational mission that speaks in terms of topic areas rather than relationship capital, intellectual resource, and networks.
Engaged Scholarship should become
the explicit framework for all OSG research and O&E activities

This means - Sea Grant faculty and staff are CO-PIs on projects
OSG staff would need different kinds of support:
Beginning of project:
Thoughtful and deliberate selection of projects/products - maybe team input
research process support
data collection, evaluation, IRB, lit reviews

End of project:
Expectation to take time to write publications and support to take that time.
The way we do certain projects will change a lot, others will only need a nudge...
Example of a project that would change very little:
COASsT project - Natural sciences PI and Learning Sciences Co-pi team. The outreach is included in the research question. This kind of project is already in alignment with new engaged scholarship model.
Example of a project that needs a nudge:
Many of our hazards grants that are co-written with geosciences simply have the O&E component as an output at the end of the grant.

The nudge would be to formalize the 'output' and make it part of the research question. This means more Co-PI time will be spent and more salary can be recovered from grants as well as a published result.
Example of a complete change in how we work:
Rethinking how our 'convening' processes look. We act as a conduit to industry and community - can we retool how we do these projects to generate more research products aimed at understanding how convening works best?

Example: Network analysis research project.
Management changes:

this means deliberate recruitment/RFP/training and partnership with researchers as well as shepherding our own in-house lines of inquiry.
this may mean looking for different venues for sharing engagement publications or deliberate research on communications.
this means formalizing products
and processes into larger research frameworks and sharing those in publication regularly.
Extension has always been a wide ranging resource to communities and stakeholder groups. Many of the 'products' of daily extension work are bridges to other kinds of goals. Those bridge products will always be a necessity; however, some of them may be able to become components in an engaged research project.

To date, we are often asked to be the go-to fixer for O&E products, broader impacts or societal relevance components on partners' grants. We tend to act as an O&E vending machine with a minor product oriented role.

Moving towards an engaged scholarship model means that we partner on more grants as co-investigators in the learning research, social science, or engagement realm.

With a robust portfolio of leveragable research products and and clear lines of institutional inquiry OSG would also be in a position to initiate larger grants and be the lead PI, actively recruiting other researchers in the endeavor.
If it has an engaged scholarship component then yes,
if no, then we look to match them elsewhere

We finally realize the move we've been trying to make since the TAT was conducted almost 16 years ago. The Visitor Center, in all aspects of its work, becomes primarily a research venue.

We move away from the mission of Visitor Services outside of how it supports engaged scholarship.

The VC:
Every exhibit and programming choice becomes a research platform
O&E products created by VC become engaged scholarship
Every aspect of the VC administration, process and programming becomes an area of potential research.

Marine Ed:
Every education program and hands-on lab becomes a research platform

Our intention should
always be to publish results and build a body of work in the O&E field when it
does not interfere with stakeholder relationships.
We consider these things luxuries now,
with this change they would become necessities.
Implementing Engaged Scholarship:
Implementing Engaged Scholarship:
Implementing Engaged Scholarship:
Our roles in grants will change
For the Visitor Center and Marine Education it means...
We need to formalize the products
and processes that come from those those relationships, resources and networks to support our own work
and teach others to do it.

"If it's not published, it's just another good idea that fades over time."
This proposal is a big change to the OSG culture, operations and workflow. It provides an opportunity for OSG to be deliberate and strategic in researcher recruitment and project design - creating more connections and products to leverage program work forward. However this is not an endeavor to be embarked upon casually - it involves BIG changes that leadership needs to support and help implement.
