During their time as Teaching Assistants (TAs), graduate students develop a variety of skills, knowledge, and attitudes (SKAs) based on teaching and related facilitation experiences. As TAs move on to future opportunities, their prior experiences form a foundation upon which additional teaching experience builds. Presently, there are few tools to…

Johnstone, Katelyn; Marquis, Elizabeth; Puri, Varun – Teaching & Learning Inquiry, 2018
Constructions of teaching, learning, and the university within popular culture can exert an important influence on public understandings of higher education, including those held by faculty and students. As such, they constitute a rich site of inquiry for the scholarship of teaching and learning. Drawing on the notion of film as 'public pedagogy,'…

Lawrie, Gwen; Marquis, Elizabeth; Fuller, Eddie; Newman, Tara; Qiu, Mei; Nomikoudis, Milton; Roelofs, Frits; van Dam, Lianne – Teaching & Learning Inquiry, 2017
The need for inclusive and equitable approaches to teaching and learning is a persistent theme in recent literature. In spite of relatively widespread agreement about this objective, inclusion remains elusive, and opinions about how best to achieve it proliferate. To provide a landscape view of the field and offer recommendations for research and…

Billot, Jennie; Rowland, Susan; Carnell, Brent; Amundsen, Cheryl; Evans, Tamela – Teaching & Learning Inquiry, 2017
Teaching and learning research in higher education, often referred to as the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), is still relatively novel in many academic contexts compared to the mainstay of disciplinary research. One indication of this is the challenges those who engage in SoTL report in terms of how this work is valued or considered…

Najafi, Hadieh; Rolheiser, Carol; Håklev, Stian; Harrison, Laurie – Teaching & Learning Inquiry, 2017
Given that few studies have formally examined pedagogical design considerations of Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs), this study explored variations in the pedagogical design of six MOOCs offered at the University of Toronto, while considering disciplinary characteristics and expectations of each MOOC. Using a framework (Neumann et al., 2002)…
