This unit aims to have participants further their knowledge about the scholarship of teaching, and to orient them towards enquiry-based reflection and improvement of teaching as a scholarly pursuit. Topics include critical reflection on, and enquiry into, teaching practice; methodologies and research methods including ethical issues and practices, associated with researching teaching; and report writing and communication of research into teaching.


This unit will require participants to design and implement a focused inquiry into teaching and learning in their discipline area. The assessment will involve: a) a proposal for an inquiry into teaching (1200 words - 20%) and b) the development of a report or a presentation to peers that describes a scholarly inquiry into teaching (4800 words - 80%).
In consultation with a member of the unit team, participants will choose a particular aspect of teaching and/or learning, to undertake a review of literature on this aspect of teaching and learning, and to undertake a critical reflection on their own teaching practice over the period of a semester. The final report will be appropriate to a discipline specific forum on teaching and learning in higher education, and may take the form of a research proposal or award application, seminar presentation, or conference or journal article.
