What is Scholarship of Teaching and Learning?

Defined as the “integration, application and transmission of knowledge” (Kreber, 2002, p. 6), scholarship of teaching and learning could be viewed as the pinnacle of the teaching practice in the academic world. It represents knowledge about excellence and expertise of teaching that is shared in a peer-reviewed format, allowing for the dissemination and critique of teaching practice to the greater community. The shared aspect of the scholarship of teaching, which can take place in different formats, from academic journal publications to teaching portfolios, can also be used as a form of educational development, as suggested by Taylor and Colet (2010).
