News & Notes

Welcome back!

The OER has many exciting initiatives lined
up for the fall semester, most notably the
implementation of training sessions resulting
from the survey we conducted last spring. We
will be announcing these training sessions
throughout the semester, so please stay tuned!

During the last academic year, the Research
Initiatives Task Force helped the OER to
prioritize and develop the ideas set forth
during the faculty retreats. Many are already in
progress, and several have been finalized. We
plan to officially unveil the products of this
important work on Friday, September 8,
before we begin the IFAS Grant Writing
Training follow-up session. Come see for
yourself and help us celebrate our

Please mark your calendars for the following

September 18: First OER Sponsored
Brown-Bag of Fall Semester:

Topic: "Public Scholarship."
Host: Dean Emihovich

Interest in rethinking the nature of research in
higher education has markedly increased over

the last 15 years, beginning with the
publication of Boyer's book, "Scholarship
Reconsidered Redefining the Priorities of the
Professoriate," in 1990. Since then, the Kellogg
Foundation released a report in 1999 on
engaged scholarship in land grant institutions,
and AERA has recently published a book,
"Education Research and the Public Interest
(2006). The terms 'engaged scholarship,'
'outreach scholarship,' and 'public
scholarship,' are often used interchangeably
but may have subtle differences that leave
faculty wondering how research will be
viewed in the future. Issues to be explored in
this discussion will include:
The changing landscape of higher
education research, especially in more
applied fields such as education
Linking research with advocacy and
social justice issues
Implications of these new paradigms
for UF and the College of Education

The chapter, I' .- Scholarship, "has been placed
in E-Reserve for your review prior to the
session. Please follow these instructions to
