Certification as a SOTL Process: Some Steps along the Way
McCarthy, Marian
National Academy for Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (NJ1), Paper presented at the Annual Conference of the National Academy for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning (3rd, Dublin, Ireland, Nov 11-12, 2009)
Certificated Courses in Teaching and Learning in Higher Education at University College Cork (UCC), Ireland, provide opportunities for faculty to develop a culture of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). The Teaching and Learning Centre runs a Certificate, Diploma and Master's Programme which is grounded in a SoTL philosophy. Central to finding SoTL pathways here is the development of a Teaching for Understanding pedagogy and the use of Course Portfolio models to document, peer-review and assess learning. To date, 200 faculty have successfully completed one or more of these courses. The paper examines the Teaching for Understanding (TfU) framework as a useful pedagogical and disciplinary lens, designed to make teaching and student learning visible. It provides evidence from the Course Portfolio work of UCC faculty, across a range of disciplines, to support the claim that TfU facilitates a SoTL process. (Contains 1 footnote.)
