What ‘Counts’ as Research or Scholarship? The (Un)Intentional Narrowing of the Definition of 'Scholarship' in SoTL (3:30 - 4:00) FILLING

Open Session Limited to 20 Participants (First-Come, First In)

Does your original discipline have 'A' Journals and 'B' Journals? Do you know colleagues who have submitted scholarly work to an 'A' Journal, had it rejected, and then successfully published it in a 'B' Journal? As a community, have we squandered our opportunity to define 'scholarship' more broadly in our rush to legitimize the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)?

During this discussion, I will offer two broader definitions of scholarship and research that, if properly embraced, would mean that we are more inclusive of activities that would count on a CV or in a Dossier.

From our combined experiences, we will generate examples of scholarly activities that should legitimately ‘count’, but are often dismissed by narrow definitions. I will argue that we need to take every opportunity to stretch the boundaries of our practice and educate others about our scholarly work, or we risk being seen as doing ‘silo’ work with little relevance to the broader education enterprise.
