Developing a Quality Culture through the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Martensson, Katarina; Roxa, Torgny; Olsson, Thomas
Higher Education Research and Development, v30 n1 p51-62 Feb 2011
The critical features of a strategy to promote improved teaching and learning are explored in this article from a socio-cultural perspective in a research-intensive institution. The paper presents theoretical underpinnings and implications as well as an empirical case study of such a strategy and its seemingly successful results. The strategy builds on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning beyond individual development and aims at cultivating a culture of continuous improvement of teaching and student learning. The case study describes a number of co-ordinated and interrelated activities at various institutional levels to support the strategy. The results are discussed in terms of academic engagement. Important aspects such as academic freedom, professional identity and leadership are also discussed. (Contains 1 note.)
