Engaged Scholarship: Sharing Findings

Guide for Engaged Scholarship, sometimes known as Community Engaged Scholarship.

Getting out the word

Being a co-creator of information is a unique role. The resources on this page include different tools and ideas for how you may present your findings to different communities, either as a community partner, or as a researcher describing your experience.
