Transform: the journal of Engaged Scholarship 3rd edition Coming Soon

Can the critically engaged university find unity in diversity?
The third edition of Transform is challenged by Professor Glyn Davis’ notable valediction to get to the next emerging stage of engagement for Australian universities. The future of the critically engaged university is a BIG social issue for our time and this notion is considered in detail in the forthcoming Issue. The emerging theme is that ‘engagement’ is a very diverse concept (research, teaching, learning and social analysis are all involved); it is more a framework or a ‘field’ of action and analysis than a single conceptual entity. Nevertheless it must have form and shape and its own intellectual definition and integrity which can bind the diverse and varied content within a focused perspective.  In the third edition of Transform, titled ‘Can the critically engaged university find unity in diversity? significant players and persons begin to question the future role of universities – with engagement being at the heart of future models.
