Abstract

While there has been a good deal of discussion about the scholarship of teaching and learning, and models have been developed to understand its scope, the effects on students' learning of academics engaging in the scholarship of teaching and learning are unclear. In the context of initiatives to develop the scholarship of teaching and learning in a large research-intensive university in Australia, this paper discusses the relationship between faculty performance on a set of scholarly accomplishments in relation to teaching and learning from 2002 to 2004, and changes in students' course experiences from 2001 to 2005. The paper provides evidence of the relationship between the scholarship of teaching and learning and students' course experiences and demonstrates the effectiveness of institutional strategies to encourage the scholarship of teaching and learning.
