Engaged Scholarship In Action

Workshop

University House, Birmingham Business School, University of Birmingham

Tuesday 4th March 2013 (09:00 – 13:15)

The notion of ‘engaged scholarship’ has become popular as a means of pursuing research that is relevant as well as rigorous. But what does the term actually mean? How can the approach be implemented? What difference does it make, and to whom? Contributors to the workshop address these questions and encourage participants to engage with them to take forward this crucial debate.
