Engaged Scholarship in Action: The Journey of the School Board – University Research Exchange (SURE) Network
In this paper we use a chronological case-study narrative format to detail the creation and progression of a School Board-University Research Exchange (SURE) network in Ontario, Canada. This network is led by a group of university- and school board-based professionals, who are committed to deepening connections between educational research, practice, and policy. Our narrative presents the SURE network’s evolution using the metaphors of being “in the woods,” looking for “our compass,” and finding “new pathways” of engaged scholarship. We present the challenges and successes we experienced while crossing the borders of our individual and institutional cultural settings, emphasising the importance of continuing discussions and collaborations within and amongst our communities.
