Toward a New Creative Scholarship of Educational Development: The Teaching and Learning Project and an Opening to Discourse
Springborg, Martin; Horii, Cassandra V.
To Improve the Academy, v35 n2 p197-221 Jun 2016
This invited essay of "To Improve the Academy's" special feature on Creative Scholarship presents one example of creative scholarship in educational development as a forward to other forms and approaches in the special feature. This example, the Teaching and Learning Project, merges documentary and art photography traditions with faculty consultation. Following a review of the literatures of visual interpretation and instructional consultation, along with their intersection, the essay presents the Teaching and Learning Project in three ways: (a) as images, analyzed using the disciplinary grounding of the visual arts; (b) as a consultation methodology and an educational development practice; and (c) as a research project using a social science-based approach (grounded theory) exploring the experience of the subjects photographed. Finally, as a segue to the rest of the "TIA" special feature, this invited essay addresses the transformative nature of creative scholarship and its implications for the field of educational development.
