Teaching and Learning Scholarship

Randy Bass of Georgetown University discusses ways to approach finding in one's teaching "a set of problems worth pursuing as an ongoing intellectual focus" parallel with the kinds of problems and questions faculty often pursue in their research. His perspective is practical and his explanations of questions that can drive faculty investigations of their own teaching are clear and concise.

The Australian Scholarship in Teaching Project outlines a model for the scholarship of teaching and contains step-by-step modules faculty can follow to initiate and then disseminate the results of a project investigating their students' learning.

The Carnegie Foundation offers an Annotated Bibliography on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning which contains citations of articles, books, and web hot links that address definitions, examples, and resources for those interested in learning more about and engaging in scholarship around teaching and learning.

The Journal of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (JSOTL) offers archives on the web and publishes research articles, essays, and classroom action research reports.
