presented by Jeffrey Howard
April 21, 2015
12 Noon CDT
This webinar aims to build the capacity of faculty, scholar-practitioners, graduate students, and community partners as co-educators to be successful in publishing their work related to service-learning, community-based research, and other manifestations of community-engaged scholarship We will offer a conceptualization for community-engaged scholarship, explore potential research and scholarly directions ripe for publication, review scholarship assessment criteria used to evaluate submissions for publication, share writing and article preparation recommendations, and identify potential publication venues. Half the time will be dedicated to presentation and half to fielding participant questions/comments.
