The Scholarship of Engagement: A Taxonomy of Five Emerging Practices
Barker, Derek
Journal of Higher Education Outreach and Engagement, v9 n2 p123-137 2004
A new form of scholarship, the scholarship of engagement, is emerging as a distinct set of practices within the general movement toward civic renewal in American higher education. This essay defines the core aspects of the scholarship of engagement and creates a taxonomy of five forms of engaged scholarship. Using a problem-driven, pluralistic approach, this essay concludes that the new forms of engaged scholarship each make important contributions to the civic renewal of American higher education and collectively constitute an exciting and growing movement.
