The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning within Action Research: Promise and Possibilities
Ryan, Thomas G.
i.e.: inquiry in education, v4 n2 Article 3 Nov 2013
Herein the idea that Action Research (A.R.) and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) are very much related is explored. For instance, educational action research demands a series of commitments; it is a journey of self, through reflective inquiry, that is social. We do it to improve our teaching and self. We desire to improve praxes (practices) and understanding within the contexts in which these understandings are implemented. The action can be described as a quest to improve just as the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) can be viewed as a systematic, even recursive effort to illuminate, improve and grow through dialogue, reflection and often strategic self-study which eventually is made public and shared.
