2014 Lynton Colloquium on the Scholarship of Engagement is September 15



2014 Lynton Colloquium on the Scholarship of Engagement
The Next Generation of Engaged Scholarship: Make Your Voice Heard

September 15, 2014  ~  8:30 AM – 4:00 PM
University of Massachusetts Boston, Campus Center Ballroom


Hosted by NERCHE and the Center for Engaged Democracy (CED) at Merrimack College, the 3rd Annual Lynton Colloquium will launch a new research initiative that aims to identify key issues in the field of civic and community engagement and to sponsor research “working groups” around each of these issues. Grounded in the work of NERCHE’s Next Generation Engagement project and the CED’s focus on academic programs in civic engagement, the Lynton Colloquium will foster sustained and systematic investigations and documented outcomes that will support deeper understandings of and clearer actions around such issues.

The Colloquium will be guided by a series of questions that encourage participants to think toward what matters in the field: What is imperative to investigate, discuss, and solve? If you could drive the research agenda for the civic engagement field for the next five years, what would you focus on? At the heart, we will be asking, “What matters to you?”

To help determine the focus of the 2014 Lynton Colloquium–and to assess and map out a research agenda for the field of community engaged scholarship–participants are asked to complete the following survey by September 10, 2014 :

Participants’ contributions to the survey will be aggregated and used to frame the content of the Colloquium and to help identify at least five research priorities for the coming academic year

The Colloquium will feature presentations and discussions that highlight the top reoccurring research priority areas identified by the above survey. Participants will then further prioritize these research areas and potentially form research working groups to carry out the research in 2014-2015. The results of these working groups will be presented at the 2015 Lynton Colloquium. NERCHE and CED hope to help support this work (in small, yet-to-be-determined ways).

The Colloquium continues to be inspired by Ernest Lynton’s framing of faculty scholarly activity as inclusive and collaborative work in which academics and community partners share knowledge and expertise in the process of public problem solving. Be a part of this change. We are excited for the Lynton Colloquium to provide this space for collective and collaborative inquiry and we look forward to your participation!
