Ernest Boyer urged that more kinds of faculty activity be recognized as forms of scholarship and accorded respect in the academic setting. In Scholarship Reconsidered (1997), Boyer added to the traditional 'scholarship of discovery' several vital but often undervalued forms of faculty work. The Scholarship of Teaching is one he added. Lee S. Shulman, John Tagg, and others have argued for an additional shift of focus, positing that what students actually learn is the rightful goal for the classroom. Now, increasing numbers of faculty hold rich conversations on pedagogies of engagement that work to enhance learning.
The faculty of Oxford College of Emory University have long supported the ideas of Boyer, Tagg, Shulman, and other SoTL advocates through individual research projects and publications, college wide initiatives like the Oxford College Program for Academic Excellence, and current teaching institutes like the Institute for Pedagogy in the Liberal Arts.
The following websites offer information to faculty on SoTL topics that range from getting started to submission of manuscripts.
