Using a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Approach to Award Faculty Who Innovate
Willingham-McLain, Laurel
International Journal for Academic Development, v20 n1 p58-75 2015
This study examines a college-teaching award that uses a scholarship of teaching model focusing on learning outcomes. Through questionnaires the researcher examined two groups' perceptions: award recipients and academic leaders. Respondents described the award and indicated the perceived effect on faculty and programs. Both groups highlighted faculty incentive to innovate for promoting student learning, a strong impact on performance evaluation, and recognition of exceptional teaching. Respondents recommended better communicating the award's rigor and learning focus to increase its impact. Recipients reported the award's influence on continued innovation, engagement in teaching scholarship, and leadership opportunities. Over half have presented their work in peer-reviewed venues.
