One of our famous Dundee penguins dressed for graduation






The first event in a series of events which will take place over the coming AY2017-18 took place on Friday 1st September.

Defining Scholarship: Challenges and Perspectives symposium was organised in partnership with the School of Social Sciences. Teaching & Scholarship activities provide an important focus for colleagues across the institution and excellence in both areas is central to the support of an outstanding student experience at Dundee. However, do we as a community have a clear understanding of what constitutes evidence to demonstrate excellence in both teaching and scholarship? What are our expectations of scholarly practice? What might a claim for advancement on the basis of scholarship look like? The symposium  kickstarted a year of discussion and reflection on scholarship at the University of Dundee.

Defining and supporting the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL): a sector-wide study (2015)

This project was carried out in the context of the Higher Education Academy (HEA) ‘Staff Transitions’ stream of work, with a view to investigating the extent to which activities undertaken under the banner of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) might inform a sector-wide reflection on ways of identifying and recognising excellence in teaching.
