The Center for Engaged Learning invites applications for the 2019-2021 research seminar on Writing Beyond the University: Fostering Writers’ Lifelong Learning and Agency.

  • July 14 – 19, 2019: Participants will meet on Elon’s campus to collaboratively develop and plan multi-institutional research projects to be conducted throughout the following year at the participants’ own institutions. These research cohorts will enable larger scale studies and explorations of the impact of different institutional contexts.
  • July 12 – 17, 2020: Participants will meet to share their initial multi-institutional results and to plan a more sharply focused research agenda for the research cohort for year two.
  • July 11 – 16, 2021: Participants will reconvene to share their year-two results, to plan continuations of their work, and to host a conference on the seminar theme.
  • June 19 – 24, 2022: In light of COVID-19 disruptions, we’re offering participants an extra summer meeting to support their collaborations.

Participants will produce significant, concrete outcomes. Past Center for Engaged Learning research seminars have generated edited volumes, journal articles and book chapters, white papers, and conference presentations – as well as local initiatives on participants’ home campuses.
