MediaED Forum 2024

According to Campus Compact: Engaged scholarship (ES) can be defined as scholarly activities focused on the social, civic, economic, educational, artistic, scientific, environmental, and cultural well-being of people and places beyond the academy. It involves the creation and dissemination of new knowledge to address social issues through collaborative relationships and shared activity between those in the university and those outside the university. 

This panel discussed what Engaged Research means for Media Literacy scholars? It provided successful examples/models and areas of social life to address.
