Many family scholars enter the discipline of Family Science so their work can affect the lives of individuals, couples, and families in a positive way.

The empirical research scholars produce, however, is often only available in research articles that are behind paywalls, creating barriers to public access. Academic publications also often include scientific jargon that is difficult for lay audiences to understand and apply.

Thus, the need for public scholarship: the intentional effort to create change through the translation and communication of scholarship to those outside of academia. By using a public scholarship framework, Family Scientists focused on the generation of evidence-based information and Family Life Educators focused on delivering educational programming can partner for the public good.

This two-part webinar series will introduce you to the value of public scholarship, discuss the benefits and barriers to engaging in public scholarship, and practical skills and tools for producing and disseminating public scholarship to make an impact grounded in socially just practice:

  1. What Is Public Scholarship and Why Should I Do It? — Sept. 17 — This webinar will focus on encouraging partnerships and promoting a culture of public scholarship in Family Science, how to overcome barriers to public scholarships, and next steps for beginning to engage in public scholarship.

  2. How Do I Communicate My Research Through Public Scholarship? — Oct. 1 — This webinar will introduce you to different modes of public scholarship, as well as to potential uses for the different modes and tools to produce and disseminate public scholarship.
