    Engaged scholarship and the creation of useful organizational knowledge

    Engaged scholarship represents one way for making research relevant to organizational practitioners by bridging the gap between theory and practice. Engaged scholarship is viewed as a form of collaborative inquiry between academics and practitioners that leverages their different perspectives to generate useful organizational knowledge. This article explores the possibilities associated with engaged scholarship in three specific contexts: (1) theory-building and research, (2) pedagogy, teaching, and education, and (3) institutional opportunities and constraints as they relate to issues of tenure and promotion and creation of the engaged campus.

    Learning about scholarship in action in concept and practice: A white paper.

    In an address to the campus at the end of her inaugural year (April, 2005), Chancellor Nancy Cantor announced her vision of Syracuse University as a Creative Campus whose faculty and students would be deeply engaged with the world, interacting with local and global communities in productive relationships and activities that she named “scholarship in action.” Recognizing the difficulty of fitting such public or community-engaged scholarship into the traditional framework for defining and evaluating faculty work, she called on the Academic Affairs Committee of the Senate to study the issues related to implementing this vision. This is a study of…

American Journal of Public Health, 102(6), 1195-1203. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22095340 This study examined how National Cancer Institute-funded Community Network Programs (CNPs) operationalized principles of CBPR. The authors reviewed the literature and extant CBPR measurement tools. On the basis of that review, they developed a questionnaire for CNPs to self-assess their operationalization of 9 CBPR principles. Twenty-two CNPs completed the questionnaire.

    How Does Engaged Scholarship Compare with Traditional (Discovery) Scholarship?

    Bowen, S. J., & Graham, I. D. (2012). From knowledge translation to engaged scholarship: Promoting research relevance and utilization. Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, 94(1, Supplement 1), S3-S8. http://www.archives-pmr.org/article/S0003-9993%2812%2900922-7/abstract To date, most efforts to translate research into health care practice have had only modest success. In response to this, the authors summarize what is known about moving knowledge into action, and the implications for rehabilitation medicine. There is increasing evidence that simple knowledge transfer alone is rarely effective. Instead, if research is to be used, it must answer important questions of concern to knowledge users, and it must be…
