Using an Engaged Scholarship Symposium to Change Perceptions: Evaluation Results
Varkey, Sapna; Smirnova, Olga; Gallien, Tara Lee
Journal of Extension, v56 n1 Article 1FEA3 Feb 2018
Engaged scholarship (ES) entails a symbiotic relationship between the community and the university. This article reports results from an evaluation of an ES symposium Eastern Carolina University held to increase awareness of ES as a means for integrating research, teaching, and service and to potentially change unfavorable perceptions about ES through education and testimonials. After the symposium, participants were more likely to suggest that the university should put more weight on ES. On the basis of our findings, we believe that a symposium designed to encourage open dialogue among faculty, administrators, and Extension professionals can lead to increased awareness of and changes in attitudes toward ES.
