Openo, Jason A.; Laverty, Cory; Kolomitro, Klodiana; Borin, Paola; Goff, Lori; Stranach, Matthew; Gomaa, Nahla – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
This paper argues a divide exists between quality assurance (QA) processes and quality enhancement, and that the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) can bridge this divide through an evidence-based approach to improving teaching practice. QA processes can trigger the examination of teaching and learning issues, providing faculty with an…

There has been growing discourse related to the importance of the scholarship of educational development (SoED), but less discussion related to clearly defining principles for guiding engagement in SoED or contextualizing SoED within literature related to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Expanding upon Felten's (2013) principles…

Boutet, Isabelle; Vandette, Marie-Pier; Valiquette-Tessier, Sophie-Claire – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
There is ample theoretical justification for incorporating reflection exercises as a tool for preparing students for life beyond university, yet the utility of such exercises needs to be documented if resources are to be devoted to their implementation. This study describes the implementation and evaluates the effectiveness of a reflection…

Woolf, Jules – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
Increased emphasis is being placed on integrating research and teaching in higher education because of the numerous benefits accrued by students. In accordance, research methods courses are ubiquitously contained in curricula, ostensibly to promote research training and the research-teaching nexus. Students may not appreciate the inclusion,…

Flaherty, Joan; McAdams, Bruce G.; LeBlanc, Joshua E. – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
Anecdotal evidence suggests that post-secondary institutions in Canada and beyond are experimenting with the practice of substituting conventional, discipline-centred course titles with more creatively phrased, learner-centred titles. However, we could find no scholarly research to affirm, challenge or guide this practice. This study represents a…

Canadian university students tend to endorse employment-related reasons for attending university ahead of other reasons such as personal satisfaction or intellectual growth. In the present study, first- and fourth-year students from a mid-sized Canadian university reported on the benefits they expected to receive from their degree and rated their…

Normandeau, Magdalen; Iyengar, Seshu; Newling, Benedict – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
Concept inventories (CI) are validated, research-based, multiple-choice tests, which are widely used to assess the effectiveness of pedagogical practices in bringing about conceptual change. In order to be a useful diagnostic tool, a CI must reflect only the student understanding of the conceptual material. The Force Concept Inventory (FCI) is…

Carnegie, Jacqueline A. – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
Summative evaluation for large classes of first- and second-year undergraduate courses often involves the use of multiple choice question (MCQ) exams in order to provide timely feedback. Several versions of those exams are often prepared via computer-based question scrambling in an effort to deter cheating. An important parameter to consider when…

Crooks, Shelagh M. – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
Though the topic of student transition into the culture and practices of higher education has been the subject of considerable investigation by scholars, the transition literature has been largely silent on the epistemological challenges that new students face in the context of the university classroom. The purpose of this paper is to look at…

Khanam, Wahidun N.; Kalman, Calvin S. – Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, 2017
It has been argued that for novice students to acquire a full understanding of scientific texts, they also need to pursue a recurrent construction of their comprehension of scientific concepts. The course dossier method has students examine concepts in multiple passes: (a) through reflective writing on text before it is considered in the…
