Arts and Humanities
Imagining America's recent national conference in New Orleans featured a plenary on Assessing the Practices of Public Scholarship (APPS). Panelists made “state of the field” remarks concerning engaged courses and projects in the arts, humanities, and design, as well as across these fields and as incorporated into social sciences and other disciplines. Facilitated break-out groups then discussed current methods of evaluating public scholarship for faculty, students, and community members, as well as metrics for tracking institutional change, and strategies for IA’s future research and delivery on this topic. The break-out group facilitators asked the following questions, which are followed by the most recurring responses and some miscellaneous remarks from participants.
