Engaged Scholarship Conference

On October 1, 2012, Martin Wolske, Senior Research Scientist with CDI, presented his paper, “Technology Education and Engaged Scholarship: The Professional, Personal, and Political,” at the National Outreach Scholarship Conference (NOSC) at the University of Alabama. A copy of the presentation, along with a draft copy of the paper, can be found on the digital repository at the University of Illinois, IDEALS at: https://www.ideals.illinois.edu/handle/2142/34677. The NOSC conference originated a decade ago when Pennsylvania State University, Ohio State University, and the University of Wisconsin-Extension initiated an annual meeting to share knowledge about their community-based programs. It brings together faculty, staff, administrators, students, and community partners to disseminate research, discuss issues, share questions, and advance the study of campus-community partnerships.

Sally Carter, Executive Director of TAP In Leadership Academy in Champaign and a community partner on the “Mix IT Up! Youth Advocacy Librarianship” grant also presented a paper with GSLIS master’s student, Jane Sandberg, called “Collaborating with the University of Illinois.” GSLIS assistant dean Rae-Anne Montague is principal investigator on the “Mix IT Up!” grant, which was funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
