Evidencing scholarship in all its forms

Visiting Scholar Talk

Date: 11 May 2018

Presented by: Dr. Patrick Crookes

Room: Room T206, UBC School of Nursing - 3rd floor of UBC Hospital

Time: 12-1pm

The intention of the workshop will be to share some insights into the nature of scholarship, based around Ernest Boyer’s scholarship model with the intention of generating discussion about what constitutes academic work, what is valued and what else might well be valued. Time will be provided to share ideas about how one goes about evidencing the quality and impact of one’s academic work.
