Engaged Scholars, v. 6 (2018).
Community Engagement Conference. The Ohio State University, Columbus, Ohio, January 24–25, 2018.
The National Science Foundation and many other funding agencies are encouraging investigators to consider the societal benefit of their work by ensuring that proposals incorporate "broader impacts" activities. Most broader impacts activities can also be considered community-engaged scholarship – community-engaged research, community-engaged creative activities, community-engaged teaching, community-engaged service, and commercialization. The speaker will describe the NSF broader impacts criterion, common and exemplar cases through which broader impacts are designed, and strategies for grant development and implementation within the larger context of engaged scholarship.
