2010 Hans O. Mauksch Address: "Teaching Sociology"--Leader of the Pack?--An Exploratory Study of Teaching Journals across Disciplines
Pike, Diane
Teaching Sociology, v39 n3 p219-226 Jul 2011
This research explores key features of the scholarship of teaching and learning presented in nine higher education pedagogical journals. In an effort to better understand the domain in which the journal "Teaching Sociology" resides, descriptive and comparative analyses indicate that there is notable variation in the type of knowledge offered to teacher-scholars in different disciplines and in the patterns of authorship in terms of solo or multiple authors and gender. "Teaching Sociology" appears to fare well in comparison with other journals for the criteria examined. The critical issue of determining how this knowledge serves us in practice remains.
