About this book

The Report provides visibility and critically examines the theory and practice of engagement. It explores ways in which engagement enhances teaching and research; it approaches engagement in ways that accept the multiple sites and epistemologies of knowledge, as well as the reciprocity and mutuality in learning and education through engagement.
