As one who has long been interested in things like electronic portfolios, this article in Academe Today caught my attention. The phrase, consumatory scholarship, is a new one to me but refers to the things we do in preparation for teaching – in other words, scholarly teaching.
There is an excellent book on course portfolios, Making Teaching and Learning Visible, by Bernstein, Burnett, Goodburn, and Savory. I have always loved the title. How do we make the many aspects of teaching visible as much of the work that occurs is “behind the scenes.”
So what things do you do? Do you blog specifically about your teaching work? Is it part of your annual review process? What new ideas do you have?
