Please join us for a discussion about two facets of being an Engaged Scholar whose work has relevant contributions to the challenges of today’s world. Andy Van de Ven will talk about the task of conducting “engaged scholarship,” rigorous work that tackles difficult and important questions by involving relevant stakeholders in research problem formulation, theory building, research design, and problem solving. Andy Hoffman will talk about the role of the “engaged scholar” and the ways you can take the results of that work and bring to the public(s) that need it and can use it. Ibrat Djabbarov will then react to these two talks, introducing the tensions, challenges and opportunities for a young scholar to bring their ideas into the portfolio of their work as they are just getting started. Anne Tsui will moderate the discussion and explain how conducting responsible scholarship and being a responsible scholar relate to the seven principles of responsible research.
