Help with Scholarship

The Division of Learning and Teaching provides a range of professional learning and teaching resources, including recordings Stepping into Scholarly Activity with Muhammed Yakin November 25 and Stepping into Scholarly Activity with Paola Castillo & Eddie Oczkowski November 24 and associated slides from the Stepping into Scholarly Activities sessions (November 2020). The recordings feature academics briefly talking about their own scholarly activity. The Stepping Further into Scholarly Activity recording and slides from April 2021 are also available. This later session focuses on reflective writing and the selection of artefacts for your scholarly activity.

Check the calendar for further workshops and other events.

Your scholarship objective in EDRS should focus on key learning and teaching issues you wish to tackle. First, use the Kern et al. (2015) diagram to assess where your scholarship is currently at and then use this template and the accompanying examples to develop a simple scholarly activity plan and, as a result, set your scholarship objective(s).

If you need help with deciding what artefacts to use to demonstrate scholarly activities the Artefacts as Evidence slide show , compiled by Associate Professor Deb Clarke, may be of assistance.

This curated collection of resources for staff to develop their skills in digital scholarship, with a focus specifically on teaching and learning.

The Library has a number of guides that may be useful to consult Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Libguide and contact a librarian for further assistance.
