Community-Engaged Work: Imagine, Write, Publish! | March 22

The Center for Social & Behavioral Science, College of Education, and Interdisciplinary Health Sciences Institute hosted community-engaged researchers at the second event in the Spring 2024 Community-Engaged Research Series, Community-Engaged Work: Imagine, Write, Publish, March 22, 10 a.m. to noon. This event was attended by community-engaged researchers and writers of all levels across campus. Participants learned practical next steps for moving their scholarship forward.

During the workshop, Diane Doberneck, Director for Faculty and Professional Development in the Office for Public Engagement and Scholarship and Adjunct Associate Professor in the Department of Community Sustainability at Michigan State University, discussed:

  • Key elements of community-engaged publishing
  • Writing with community partners
  • Unfurling a project into multiple publishing pieces
  • Strategizing on where to publish your work

The workshop was followed by a networking lunch and private half-hour consultations with Dr. Doberneck for researchers to discuss their community-engaged research and publishing agendas.

The Community-Engaged Research Series aims to build and enhance the experience of community-engaged researchers across campus and provide them with the skills and resources needed to impact research in this space.
