The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning : A Guide for Scientists, Engineers, and Mathematicians, Hardback Book


The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: A Guide for Scientists, Engineers, and Mathematicians shows college and university faculty members how to draw on their disciplinary knowledge and teaching experience to investigate questions about student learning.

It takes readers all the way through the inquiry process beginning with framing a research question and selecting a research design, moving on to gathering and analyzing evidence, and finally to makingthe results public.

Numerous examples are provided at each stage, many from published studies of teaching and learning in science, engineering, or mathematics.

At strategic points, short sets of questions prompt readers to pause and reflect, plan, or act.

These questions are derived from the authors' experienceleading many workshops in the United States and Canada on how to do the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).

The taxonomy of SoTL questions-What works? What is? What could be?-that emerged from the SoTL studies undertaken by scholars in the Carnegie Academic for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning serves as a framework at many stages of the inquiry process.

The book addresses the issue of evaluating and valuing this work, including implications for junior faculty who wish to engagein SoTL.

The authors explain why SoTL should be of interest to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) faculty at all types of higher education institutions, including faculty members active in traditional STEM research.

They also give their perspective on the benefits of SoTL tofaculty, to their institutions, to the academy, and to students.
