Call for Manuscripts
The Scholarship of Teaching is a publication of professional candor about all matters relating to teaching and learning. Original essays, commentaries and articles reporting informal research on your teaching may explore what you find compelling, perplexing, and inspiring about your work in and outside the classroom. Previously published original articles may be reprinted with permission.
That Which Possesses Us
In considering that which possesses us (versus that which we possess), a deep truth comes to light about who we are. Inspired by Judy Rosenthal’s Possessed by Anthropology appearing in this issue, this theme invites you to trace the evolution of your interests, experiences, and the individuals that led you to a career in your subject matter.
On Relevance in Education
In response to Chuck Dunlop’s essay, “General Education and Cultural Ignorance,” what role does relevance play in general education? Is relevance a pre-requisite to learning? Is it a by-product of learning? Is it an impediment to learning? Exploring relevance from a range of perspectives and across its different aspects will likely yield insight compelling to writer and reader alike.
A Moment of Pause
After our Deans shared their moments of pause in the first issue, what gives (or has given) you pause in teaching and learning? This moment may have left you puzzled, shocked, joyous, frustrated, or bewildered but, whatever the circumstance, it caused you to think. It may be one you have encountered recently or long ago. Detail the moment followed by your thoughts on its impact.
