“This talk reports on a research study that has the dual aims of improving theory and practice within an Engineering Education context. The focus is on the development of students’ graduate-level work skills as part of their Higher Education programme and a specific practice example (during the ISMM programme) provided an ideal study opportunity. Engaged scholarship, a research approach from Management Science, was selected as it provided a way to study practice that can generate both theoretical and practical knowledge. The talk sets out the strengths and challenges of applying the Engaged Scholarship approach and evaluates the research design in terms of quality. The implementation phase is then reviewed and some of the practical challenges that have been encountered are discussed. These include engaging stakeholders, consolidating perspectives and the schedule of the ISMM programme being studied.”
