Hunt, Jr. Library North Carolina State University Raleigh, North Carolina Workshop Purpose: To s hare methods, outcomes, and experiences with engaged scholarship for ethics and responsible innovation in STEM fields. Engaged Scholarship, by which the activities of academe meet the needs of external communities and vice versa (Van de Ven 2007). It can be used in experiential learn ing that can serve as a bridge in linking students with real-world contexts for the issues and problems they are studying. Peterson (2009) describes its usefulness as “providi ng a well-rounded education for students, a widening of the university’s knowledge base, and an empowering investment in community change” and argues that there is a needed shift in higher education in this direction “in order to produce socially responsible students who are able to engage with the critical problems of our times.” Workshop Format The 1.5 day workshop will include keynote presentations, student and community panels, interactive breakout sessions, and poster presentations. Posters are welcome on ethics and responsible innovation courses, research projects and activities in STEM fields that incorporate engaged schol arship, such as: collaborative, community-engaged research and learning involving STEM students; teaching social science research skills such as focus-group facilitation to STEM students; teaching civic-engagement theory and practice to STEM students.
