The State of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Psychology
Gurung, Regan A. R.; Ansburg, Pamela I.; Alexander, Patricia A.; Lawrence, Natalie Kerr; Johnson, David E.
Teaching of Psychology, v35 n4 p249-261 Oct 2008
Many members of the academy have tried to broaden the construct of scholarship to include activities that investigate pedagogy and student learning, the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Halpern et al. (1998) first established such a definition for the field of psychology. This article reports on a Society for the Teaching of Psychology (APA, Division 2) task force national survey assessing the state of SoTL in psychology. Although psychology has not globally embraced SoTL as legitimate scholarship, there are indications that the sentiment to do so is taking root. We conclude with recommendations about how the discipline can enhance its efforts to promote SoTL. (Contains 6 tables and 3 notes.)
