The Scholarly Environment Model (SEM) has been adopted by Charles Sturt to provide guidance to the scholarly activity categories and collection of artefacts. The Scholarly Environment Model (SEM) (Figure 2) draws from the TEQSA categories outlined in the TEQSA Scholarship Guidance note (V2.5, December 2018). It recognises the different forms of scholarship, outputs that TEQSA might expect to see as evidence for the different forms of scholarship, and how networking opportunities could be used to help disseminate those outputs between academic staff. The SEM informs the learning plan and scholarly activities undertaken in the Scholarly Activity Framework.
