Enhancing the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: An Organic Approach
Adcroft, Andy; Lockwood, Andrew
Teaching in Higher Education, v15 n5 p479-491 Oct 2010
The aim of this paper is to report on an experiment in the School of Management at the University of Surrey whereby the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is being promoted through an approach which is organic in nature. The paper argues that the nature of such scholarship means that its promotion is more likely to be successful when the approach taken is bottom-up and emergent as this is more likely to foster commitment and trust. In defining this approach, the paper draws on a diverse range of literature which is synthesised into a general concept of how such organic approaches may work. The paper concludes by suggesting that developing a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning requires the collective effort of all stakeholders involved. (Contains 1 table and 5 figures.)
