Personal Reflection: A Reflection on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning as Democratic Practice
Dees, David M.
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v2 n2 Article 19 Jul 2008
This personal reflection describes how the scholarship of teaching and learning models democratic practice. Motivated by a forced curricular change, this piece outlines the reflection and growth of a college professor as he realized that democratic awareness is developed more fully through action than through readings and/or class discussions. In the end, a scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) project served to re-frame my perspective towards teaching, learning, and democratic practice in a college classroom.
