In this conversation Prof. Hibbert discusses his experiences as editor, educator, senior manager and researcher. Paul shares a model for doing engaged scholarship with three different levels of engagement and reflexivity. This three stage model can be useful for academics who wish to start their journey of engagement but are not sure how; but also for those who are more experienced and want to identify new ways of stretching and amplifying their engagement.
