This unit explores what is meant by the ‘scholarship of teaching and learning’ and aims to further develop participants’ ability to inquire into their own university teaching practice, plan improvements based on scholarship, and to communicate the outcomes of such work in scholarly and practice-based contexts. The unit aims to encourage participants to further reflect on and improve their own teaching based on an understanding of the literature of the discipline of higher education as well as scholarship and teaching practice in participants’ own disciplines. Participants will have the opportunity to explore a negotiated topic by planning a group inquiry project in university teaching and learning, developed with colleagues on the course.
