Toward A Reconceptualization of Scholarship: A Human Action System with Functional Imperatives.
Paulsen, Michael B.; Feldman, Kenneth A.
Journal of Higher Education, v66 n6 p615-40 Nov-Dec 1995
The meaning and dimensions of the construct of scholarship are explored, using a four-function paradigm as an analytic framework for deducing four basic categories of scholarship (teaching, service, research and graduate training, academic citizenship). The paradigm helps explain the nature and functions of college faculty work. Comparisons are made with other analyses; potential expansions and limitations are discussed. (MSE)
