Thursday 9th December 9.30 -10.30am, via Zoom
Professor David Boud, Work and Learning Research Centre, Middlesex University.
Research and Publishing in Learning and Teaching in Higher Education
Being scholarly about ones’ teaching is normal business for us all. For some, this will involve contributing to the scholarship of learning and teaching. This typically involves small scale investigations with colleagues in their own courses, trials and presentations of new approaches and their evaluation, gaining a deeper understanding of their own students’ learning. For a much smaller number, it will involve a further step into becoming a researcher in learning and teaching who undertakes research studies and publishes in higher education journals.
The session will draw on Professor Boud’s extensive experience of collaborating with many staff in a wide range of disciplines in researching learning, teaching and assessment. It will start with an initial focus on the area of the scholarship of learning and teaching and move to what is involved in making the transition to being a researcher of learning and teaching. It will map the territory of the transition and what is involved in it. It will address questions such as: How similar is research in higher education to that in one’s own discipline? How to get started in learning and teaching research? What is involved in getting published in this area?
