Workshop: Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Date/Time
24 Apr, Tuesday, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 1, #01-01B
Description

Institutions responsible for the education of students must ensure that its education mission is optimally fulfilled together with its other missions like research and service. In institutions of higher learning, the primary emphasis on mission fulfillment was heavily weighted on research and, consequently, the word scholarship was narrowly interpreted to include only activities focused on discovery of new knowledge through the research process. During 1990s, the late Boyer advocated a reappraisal of and expanded the meaning of the word ‘scholarship’ which was further refined and now includes the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Today, in the 21st century, many institutions of higher learning recognize the scholarship of teaching and learning as a pathway to promotion and tenure in academia. However, to benefit from this, it is important to have a clear understanding of the demands and rigour associated with the achievement of the scholarship of teaching and learning.
