Leveraging New Media in the Scholarship of Engagement: Opportunities and Incentives
LaBelle, Chris; Anderson-Wilk, Mark; Emanuel, Robert
Journal of Extension, v49 n6 Article 6FEA3 Dec 2011
This article looks at how Extension faculty and administrators perceive digital scholarship in relation to their institutions' reward systems. Our survey data suggest that even when land-grant institutions have policies in place to reward alternative or new forms of scholarship, these policies are often unclear or inaccessible, are not reflected in job descriptions, and do not provide enough detail to ensure consensus among colleagues. Clear policies that reward digital scholarship and recognize the prominent role of technology in university-wide engagement efforts have become increasingly crucial because of budgetary constraints and the changing behaviors and preferences of Extension clients. (Contains 6 tables.)
