Broader Impacts 101
This workshop is designed to increase understanding of the history and importance of developing robust and thoughtful broader impacts plans for federal funding proposals. Attendees will leave with a deeper understanding of how to develop a strong broader impacts plan from conceptualization to implementation, and an increased awareness of broader impacts resources that are available at Ohio State to support these efforts. While the term broader impacts is unique to the National Science Foundation, this workshop is designed to be valuable to researchers and scholars seeking funding from any source that prioritizes research impacts in society.
Engaged Practitioners Network
The Engaged Practitioners Network is a space for those Ohio State staff who are working in community outreach and engagement. We will provide an opportunity for sharing best practices as well as networking with colleagues across campus. Our goal is to create a community of practice for staff. We hope to amplify collaborations, share best practices and increase professional development opportunities.
Engaged Scholarship Faculty Community of Practice
The Office of Outreach and Engagement has placed a greater emphasis on the scholarship of engagement over the past several years through its grants and awards programs. In an effort to further advance this work and raise its profile at the university, we are forming a Community of Practice (CoP) for Ohio State faculty. If your scholarship is in any way focused on connecting the "rich resources of the university to our most pressing social, civic and ethical problems," (from Boyer, 1996, The Scholarship of Engagement), we would invite you to participate in this CoP.
