i am constantly and consistently doing research and reading about public scholarship as a part of my journey to become more forward facing as well as to guide researchers and scholars on their own unique public scholarship journey. to support the proposition that academics are content curators, i created a curated catalog of information for public scholars.
using Padlet as the vessel, i share just about every bit of public scholarship research, article, commentary, etc. i come across. not only is this a way for me to track and organize the research i find, it is also contains useful information for a research interested in public scholarship. this includes social media strategies, risk and rewards, and examples of how to discuss public scholarship in your tenure and promotion file. i chose Padlet because i can organize the content in a visually pleasing and categorical way. i wish i could include searchable tags, but maybe that will be in the next iteration of the catalog.
i hope the public scholar catalog will help scholars in their public scholarship journey. let me know if there is anything i might be missing!
