    Call for Poster Presentations
    Workshop on Engaged Scholarship for Ethics
    and Responsible Innovation in STEM Fields

     

    March 14 – 15, 2018
    Genetic Engineering & Society Center
    James B. 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.

    The workshop is free, but attendance is limited. Support of up to $500 is available to offset travel and lodging expenses for selected participants. 

    To Apply
    Submit a 500-750 abstract o

    f your poster presentation and an NSF-style 2-page biosketch via Google Form. If travel support is requested, please include estimated airfare.

    Deadline for receipt of Abstracts: December 8, 2017.
    Notification of Acceptance: December 22, 2017.
