Touching down: Grounding Scholarship of Teaching in Learning in Lived Experience
James, Jennifer Hauver
Teacher Education and Practice, v24 n4 p462-464 Fall 2011
If educational research stemming from colleges of education is sometimes out of touch, scholarship engaged by school districts and state boards of education is often dangerous in its distant view but arms-length reach. Teaching and learning are enhanced when members of the school community engage in collective grounded efforts to make real change. Scholarship is powerful when it starts with relationship building and grows organically, identifies key issues in the school community, looks to research for possible answers, and involves all stakeholders in decision making, continuous reflection, and evaluation. Such efforts are powerful for enhancing the teaching and learning of students in public schools and in the education of teachers. In this article, the author talks about grounding scholarship of teaching in learning in lived experience.
