The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: A Special Niche for Faculty at Comprehensive Universities?
Henderson, Bruce B.; Buchanan, Heidi E.
Research in Higher Education, v48 n5 p523-543 Aug 2007
We investigated the involvement of faculty members at comprehensive universities in scholarship of teaching and learning publishing activities in four disciplines. Compared to their publishing rates in research-oriented journals, comprehensive university faculty members were more involved in publishing articles and serving on editorial boards for pedagogical journals. Over the past three decades, the relative involvement in the scholarship of teaching and learning journals by faculty members at comprehensive universities and liberal arts colleges has increased whereas participation by faculty members at research universities has declined.
