Beyond Scholarship: Recognizing the Multiple Roles of the Professoriate.
Arreola, Raoul; Theall, Michael; Aleamoni, Lawrence M.
This paper, and the model it contains, respond to the need for a creative view of the work of the professoriate. Research in faculty evaluation has led to a view of the professoriate as a "meta" profession in the sense that a college professor must perform at a professional level in a variety of roles that require expertise and skills in areas that often extend beyond the faculty member's specific area of scholarly expertise. The metaprofession model of faculty roles in this paper provides a structure for conducting research, delivering faculty development programs, designing faculty evaluation systems, and developing administrative policies that lead to improved teaching and learning. The conceptualization of the scholarship of teaching of E. Boyer may be operationalized more readily when seen as a special case of the general meta-professional model in this paper.
