The scholarship of teaching l.jpg
The Scholarship of Teaching

For an activity to be designated as scholarship, it should manifest at least three key characteristics:

  • It should be public

  • It should be susceptible to critical review and evaluation

  • It should be accessible for exchange and use by other members of one’s scholarly community

    Lee Schulman, President of The Carnegie Foundation, 1998

The mission and vision of the CTF coincides with a growing national conversation about the scholarship of teaching. Strategies to raise the value of the scholarship of teaching include:

  • Establish a formalized structure that can promote this culture of value.

  • Bring faculty’s work as teachers the recognition and reward afforded to forms of scholarly work.

  • Understand that the scholarship of teaching can and should take different forms.

  • Assess scholarship using standards of ‘significant results’.

  • Broaden the view of scholarship to include all of faculty’s intellectual works and endeavors.

The Scholarship of Teaching

The mission and vision of the CTF coincides with a growing number of medical schools’ efforts to create an institutional system for empowering faculty ownership and oversight of medical education. (Academic Medicine, 2005). Shared characteristics of these efforts include:

  • Relatively new institutional concept

  • Intention to enhance educational mission

  • Designed to stimulate educational innovation and improvements

  • Improves educators’ skill development

  • Promotes communication and collaboration among educators

  • Provides mentoring of junior faculty

  • Assists in promotion and tenure process

The Scholarship of Teaching

Bender and Gray (1999) suggest that the scholarship of teaching begins where all intellectual inquiry begins, with questions about what is going on and how to explain, support, and replicate answers that satisfy us.

The ctf framework12 l.jpg
The CTF Framework

CTF members identify the themed areas of most interest to them.

Within themed areas, members chose focused project groups.

Project groups either respond to a charge or design an approved project to pursue.

Each project group has a designated leader responsible for the organizational and reporting elements.

Each project group meets a minimum of once each month.

Deadlines for approved project are established.

Each subgroup produces works that will be made public, critically reviewed, and accessible for exchange with all faculty.
