Moving toward the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: The Classroom Can Be a Lab, Too!
Smith, Randolph A.
Teaching of Psychology, v35 n4 p262-266 Oct 2008
Division 2 of the American Psychological Association was practicing the scholarship of teaching long before Boyer (1990) coined the term, but Boyer brought the idea to academe's consciousness. Over time, however, the scholarship of teaching and "scholarly teaching" have become confused. Based on Richlin's (2001) work, I attempt to resolve this confusion by equating the scholarship of teaching with scholarly work by faculty. In addition, I point out the parallels between assessment and the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and provide tips for faculty who want to engage in SoTL research but see roadblocks in their way. (Contains 1 table and 2 notes.)
