Scholarship of Teaching & Learning

"The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is the systematic investigation of teaching and learning issues made available for peer review through publication or presentation in an academic forum.  According to Laurie Richlin,"scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching are closely interrelated. However, they differ in both their intent and product. Because both scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching are vital to the life of the academy, it is important to clarify and operationalize each of them. In my view, the purpose of scholarly teaching is to impact the activity of teaching and the resulting learning, whereas the scholarship of teaching results in a formal, peer-reviewed communication in the appropriate media or venue, which then becomes part of the knowledge base of teaching and learning in higher education" ("Scholarship revisited: Perspectives on the Scholarship of Teaching," New Directions for Teaching and Learning No. 86, Summer 2001, page 38).
