Transcript of Engaged Scholarship Online

At the East Coast Colleges Social Science Roundtable in Virginia,I presented a framework for a new online course management tool that can efficiently facilitate university-based external partnerships.
Engaged Scholarship connects the rich resources of the university with identified problems surrounding the university community.
Under the umbrella of Engaged Scholarship, developing an online course management tool that grants access to all interested stakeholders will enhance faculty teaching, research, and service.
The goal is to run an interactive forum where community partners can co-create projects with faculty/students.
“Service-learning combines service to the community with student learning in a way that improves both the student and the community” (Avila-Linn & Rice, 2010, p. 3).
Service-Learning is not community service!
Incorporating the following elements assist in providing a high quality service-learning experience:
Identity a local problem based on community concerns.
Service-learning objectives and student learning outcomes are integrated.
Look for ways to empower students.
Create forums for peer-to-peer reflection.
Facilitates avenues for student-led data collection/analysis.
Enables students to create a social change.
Works best when you incorporate project-based learning.
Theoretical Framework
Combining Course Management Tools

Collaborates with the university library system
Engaged Scholarship
Integrates the interdisciplinary faculty roles of teaching, research, and service (Silka, 2015).
Involves academics and individuals outside the academy—knowledge professionals and the lay public (regional/state, national, global, universal).
Facilitates the exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
Includes explicitly democratic dimensions of encouraging the participation of non-academics in ways that enhance and broaden engagement and deliberation about major social issues inside and outside the university.
Creates a dialogic forum that transforms an identified problem into a service-learning project. Intentionally moves partnership to action.
Theoretical Framework
Objective 1: To create a comprehensive course management tool that helps to facilitate these types of engaged partnerships.
Create an interactive online community.
Provide a searchable community based asset map based on local problems.
Create a "digital home" within the college's library for community based research.
Create a searchable database that allows students to build off of previous research conducted by previous students.

Objective 2: To create an informative student profile, so that service-learning activity can be individually tailored toward student interest (differentiating instruction):
Academic Major
Personal and Professional Goals
Desired Career
Acquired Skills
Class and Work Schedule (Coordinate Service Logistics)
Course Management Tool Tips
Goals of this Course Managment Tool
This new model for engaged scholarship will hopefully contribute to the field of service-learning methodology.
Add credibility and legitimacy to the field of engaged scholarship.
Improve communication between partners.
Provide a forum (student symposium) for showcasing projects and disseminating research.
Gather ideas from multiple academic and administrative departments (Career Services).
Consult with members of the university Center for Teaching and Learning.
Consult with members of the university Information Technology department.
Consult with Course Management Companies.
Looking Ahead (Initial First Steps)
Ability to Connect with Online "Friends"
Enables Curricular input from community
Enables faculty and community partners to continually plan student activities.
Provides a forum to send project updates.
Provides a forum to share classroom activity, and ask for support.
Learning that occurs can be immediately applied and continually reinforced.
This site should be open to the public.
