Disciplinary Styles in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: Exploring Common Ground

Document Type



Will the scholarship of teaching and learning find its home with other pedagogical discussions--on the margins of most disciplines? Or will it be registered and legitimated within the heart of the disciplines themselves?

In response to an orienting essay raising such questions, scholars from 10 disciplines describe the evolution of discourse about teaching and learning in their field; the ways in which their discipline's style of discourse influences inquiry into teaching and learning; and the nature and role of intellectual exchange across disciplines around such inquiry.

Whatever the future of the scholarship for teaching and learning, it will no longer be mostly a matter of parallel play. In presenting the "sounds and silences" of these 10 disciplines to a polyglot audience, this volume's contributors seek to help develop a common language "for trading ideas, enlarging our pedagogical imaginations and strengthening our scholarly work."
