Scholarship of Teaching and Student Retention
Abstract: It is instructive to understand this difference in discussing scholarship of teaching. Scholarly teaching is teaching with an inquiry approach to assess the learning outcomes from one’s course which improves the quality of teaching; scholarship of teaching represents a broader view of understanding how students learn. There is a significant connection among scholarship of teaching, engagement of students and student retention. Especially in the past five years, progress has been made in recognizing the need for research in teaching and learning. But much more progress is needed.
