Abstract

Georgia Southern University faculty members Robert L. Lake and Kent Rittschof co-authored "Using Attitude Measures and Student Narratives about Diversity to Enhance Multicultural Teaching Effectiveness " in Promoting Social Justice Through the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

Book Summary: How can education become a transformative experience for all learners and teachers? The contributors to this volume contend that the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) can provide a strong foundation for the role of education in promoting social justice. The collection features contributions by an array of educators and scholars, highlighting the various ways that learners and teachers can prepare for and engage with social justice concerns. The essays offer reflections on the value of SoTL in relation to educational ethics, marginalized groups, community service and activism, counter narratives, and a range of classroom practices. Although the contributors work in a variety of disciplines and employ different theoretical frameworks, they are united by the conviction that education should improve our lives by promoting equity and social justice.
