Working together: A methodological case study of ‘Engaged Scholarship’

May 1, 2015

This paper explores the University of Queensland’s Boilerhouse Community Engagement Centre (UQ Boilerhouse) as a case study for engaged scholarship in practice. Informed by principles of participatory action research (PAR), the paper describes the three stages of the methodological framework guiding the work of UQ Boilerhouse: project development and design, data collection and analysis, and reporting and project evaluation. In conclusion, the paper examines ways in which PAR can effectively promote participatory democracy, and discusses particular constraints and challenges of the PAR process.
