Excerpt: The scholarship of teaching and learning is quickly gaining recognition as a viable form of scholarship.; Maryellen Weimer’s contribution to the growing literature in this field moves us even closer to acceptance of this form of scholarship as tenure-worthy scholarship that does make difference in the lives of faculty, administrators and students.
Dr. Weimer’s argument is that as this literature grows we need to not only encourage new methodologies, but also learn from what we have already done by looking at previously published works in the area.; Her book is divided into three sections.; The first section helps us understand why this approach is necessary and sets the reader up for the meat of the book in the second section where she analyzes the literature and categorizes the types of approaches used.; The final section focuses on advice to those who want to start or continue a scholarly agenda in this area and to administrators to help them advance this practice.
