- NC State Scholarship of Community Engagement Institute
What is Community Engaged Scholarship?
"Community Engaged Scholarship goes beyond the typical domains of research and teaching to incorporate a mutually beneficial relationship with the community in order to bring.....resources to others. Through community engaged scholarship, we gain and share understanding of....issues and provide strategies to address them. By educating ourselves and others, we may establish relationships that will bring about transformational change."
Please visit this page for additional program details.
- NC State Certificate in Reflective Teaching
The Program is designed to provide support and recognition for faculty members at NC State who are dedicated to improving their teaching and learning more about pedagogy. The program helps faculty members move towards becoming scholarly teachers. Scholarly teachers “view teaching as a profession and the knowledge base on teaching and learning as a second discipline in which to develop expertise” (McKinney, 2007, p. 9). Scholarly teachers “do things such as reflect on their teaching, use classroom assessment techniques, discuss teaching issues with colleagues, try new things, and read and apply the literature on teaching and learning” (McKinney, 2007, p. 9).
