Workshops on Engaged Scholarship open to faculty, grad students and post-docs

The Engaged Scholarship Development Initiative is a new resource sponsored by the Year of Engagement for faculty members, graduate students and post-doctoral fellows at Pitt who are interested in engaged scholarship.

A series of open, virtual workshops will take place during the academic year to learn how to implement engaged scholarship, connect with other engaged scholars, and advance your own work. 

The first in the series is Engaged Scholarship 101, which will take place from noon to 1:30 p.m. Dec. 14. This workshop will focus on basics of engaged scholarship: key concepts, common models, the importance of reciprocal partnerships, and the various products and outcomes.
