BOYER’S MODEL OF SCHOLARSHIP
- The scholarship of discovery that includes original research that advances knowledge
- The scholarship of integration that involves synthesis of information across disciplines, across topics within a discipline, or across time
- The scholarship of application/engagement that goes beyond the service duties of a faculty member to those within or outside the University and involves the rigor and application of disciplinary expertise with results that can be shared with and/or evaluated by peers
- The scholarship of teaching and learning that involves the systematic study of teaching and learning processes differs from scholarly teaching in that it requires a format that will allow public sharing and the opportunity for application and evaluation by others.
