Scholarship in Higher Education: Building Research Capabilities through Core Business
Nagy, Judy
British Journal of Educational Studies, v59 n3 p303-321 2011
As performativity within the academy continues to escalate, this paper considers the place for building research capacities through a scholarship in teaching and learning initiative at an Australian university. While the tensions that exist between discipline research and scholarship in teaching and learning remain, evaluation data for a central higher education research group suggests that an alternative research pathway is possible through collegial structures. The drive towards performativity is not unique to Australia and the evidence presented provides insights that may be useful for a broader audience that may be considering research capacity building. (Contains 5 figures, 2 tables and 1 note.)
