Using constructivism, situated learning theory, and Jesuit philosophy as theoretical frameworks, personal narratives were analyzed to examine the evolution of the collaboration. Results describe perspectives and relationship among members and delineate processes that characterize the partnership. The application of autoethnographic research methods to study partnerships is described. Panelists include: Christine Siegel, GSEAP; Wendy Kohli, GSEAP; Kelly O’Leary, St. Martin de Porres Academy; Kameron Isaacs, St. Martin de Porres Academy.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS "With-ness" as a Warrant: Exploring the Mutually-Transformative Potential of Community Engagement as Scholarship Location: Gonzaga Hall Auditorium
Date: 02/10/2011
Time: 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The Scholarship of Engagement, which springs from the thinking of the late Ernest Boyer, former president of the Carnegie Academy for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning, is defined as, research, teaching, integration, and application scholarship that incorporate reciprocal practices of civic engagement into the production of knowledge (Barker, D., 2004). The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) and Office of Service Learning (OSL) are excited to bring guest speaker Dr. Patti Clayton to campus. Patti is a national expert on community engagement as scholarship and will challenge participants to think beyond the “university as expert” model of engagement and grapple with an emerging paradigm of engaged scholarship grounded in democratic civic engagement, thick reciprocity and the co-construction of teaching, learning, and knowledge generation. During her time with us, she will provide an overview of community engagement as scholarship and the various practices that fall under this umbrella such as the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), community-based research, service learning, participatory action research, and public scholarship. Patti will deliver a keynote presentation, offer workshops, consultations, and engage in productive conversations. We hope that you will mark your calendars for these exciting events and join us in these provocative and mission-critical conversations. Dr. Clayton’s keynote address will be followed with a reception for all participants in the lobby outside of Gonzaga Auditorium. This will be an opportunity to carry on the discussion and network with one another. All participants are strongly encouraged to read the attached article “Community Engaged Scholarship as Mutually Transformative Partnerships” (Jameson, Jaeger, and Clayton, 2011) in preparation for the keynote and related dialogue. This event is open to all members of the university community as well as our community partners and engaged scholars across the state.
