Learning about Learning--Together
Miller-Young, Janice; Felten, Peter; Clayton, Patti H.
Michigan Journal of Community Service Learning, v23 n2 p154-158 Spr 2017
It is believed that the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)--i.e., inquiry into learning--has the potential to further deepen the ability to question, learn, and act together--especially when it is understood and enacted through the values and practices of democratic civic engagement (DCE). The authors provide a brief example of what they have come to call DCE-SoTL: SoTL that is interested in everyone's learning and that sees everyone as able to study learning and improve action accordingly--rather than defaulting to the approach of faculty (only) investigating student (only) learning. In this thought piece, the authors call for putting such co-creation at the heart of SoTL and explore what happens when we do so. They contend that the co-inquiry, co-learning, and co-action of DCE invite--indeed, require--a distinct and new conception and practice of SoTL.
