Personal Reflection: Transforming Teaching Practice through Action Research: The Role of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Goel, Kalpana
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v6 n2 Article 28 Jul 2012
This reflective piece describes my experiences of teaching practice in an Indian University and my transformed practice as a result of enrolment in the Graduate Certificate in Education (University Teaching) in an Australian university. I enrolled in this course with hesitation, considering it time consuming and likely to detract from any focus on research. However, the experiences and learning in different modules of the graduate certificate became instrumental in producing an action researcher from a standard academic. In this essay, I will share my engagement with the scholarship of teaching and learning through an action research project which has transformed my teaching practice.
