This blog is about teaching-learning in higher education. It is a first-stab, rogue effort by academic and support staff members of the Potchefstroom campus of the North-West University. We are serious about teaching-learning and need an electronic forum to share ideas, resources and inspire a movement. But it is about more than doing your teaching job better, it is about the scholarship of teaching-learning.
What is Scholarship of Teaching-Learning?
Scholarship of teaching learning is about the science of teaching-learning, doing research about teaching-learning and writing up for peer-reviewed publication.
What is the aim of this blog?
The aim of this blog is to take the conversation that is starting around campus beyond the discussion over an occasional cup of coffee. We want to create a platform where academics that are interested can share ideas, resources and build a community of practice.
How do you get involved?
This is a rough and ready start. Maybe you want to contribute a post, or you want to redesign the blog and help with its admin. Post a comment, ask some questions or send us an e-mail. Spread the word.
