Webconference: Learning about the New Community-Engaged Scholarship Toolkit

A frequently cited barrier to faculty involvement in community-based participatory research, service-learning and other forms of community-engaged scholarship is the risk associated with trying to achieve promotion and tenure. Community-engaged scholarship poses significant challenges to traditional definitions of scholarship and is not often supported by the promotion and tenure process.

The goal of the Community-Engaged Scholarship Toolkit is to provide health professional faculty with a set of tools to carefully plan and document their community-engaged scholarship and produce strong portfolios for promotion and tenure.

The featured presenter for this webconference was CCPH senior consultant and toolkit author Diane C. Calleson, Department of Family Medicine, School of Medicine, Public Health Leadership Program, School of Public Health, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Teleconference Call: Community Engagement and Community-Engaged Scholarship: Clarifying Our Meanings When Using These Terms

Not all community-engaged activities undertaken by faculty are scholarship. For example, if a faculty member devotes time to developing a community-based health program, it may be important work and it may advance the service mission of the institution, but what other components are required so that it would be considered scholarship? This was a lively discussion with Barbara Holland, Director of the National Service Learning Clearinghouse, and Robert Bringle, Director of Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis Center for Service and Learning, on the meanings of these terms, how one can move community engagement activities to community-engaged scholarship, and how both can be reflected, assessed, and supported by an institution's review, promotion, and tenure policies and practices.

This teleconference was an activity for the Community-Engaged Scholarship for Health Collaborative.

Community-Based Participatory Research: A Systematic Review of the Literature and Its Implications

In 2002, the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality commissioned the Research Triangle Institute-University of North Carolina Evidence-Based Practice Center to conduct a systematic review of the literature on CBPR approaches to improved health. Published in July 2004, the review was designed to establish the nature of the current literature and to assist academics, community participants and funders by identifying gaps in implementing this approach.

CCPH and the Northwest Center for Public Health Practice co-sponsored this web conference focused on two questions covered by the systematic review:

1. How has CBPR been implemented to date with regard to the quality of research methodology and community involvement? 2. What is the evidence that CBPR efforts have resulted in the intended outcomes?
