Growing the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning through Institutional Culture Change
Ginsberg, Sarah M.; Bernstein, Jeffrey L.
Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v11 n1 p1-12 Jan 2011
The scholarship of teaching and learning represents an important movement within higher education. Through this work, the profession of teaching is able to build upon itself through sustained inquiry and an evidence-based culture. However, for the scholarship of teaching and learning to take hold on a campus, a culture shift often needs to occur, during which time actions by campus leaders, change agents and facilitators lay the groundwork for, and effect, institutional change. This paper uses an organizational theory approach to sketch out a model by which this culture change can occur. It then uses our experiences at a regional comprehensive university in the Midwestern United States to elaborate on culture change models. Our experiences teach valuable lessons about how the scholarship of teaching and learning can become an important element within a campus culture. (Contains 7 footnotes and 2 tables.)
