“Important


According to Lee Schulman, President of The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching: “Scholarly teaching is what every one of us should be engaged in every day that we are in a classroom, in our office with students, tutoring, lecturing, conducting discussions, all the roles we play pedagogically…. But it is only when we step back and reflect systematically on the teaching we have done, in a form that can be publicly reviewed and built upon by our peers, that we have moved from scholarly teaching to the scholarship of teaching.”

Maryville University is an Affiliate of The Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (CASTL)

CASTL Affiliates are committed to institutional action in support of the scholarship of teaching and learning in the following ways:

  • Designation of a CASTL Affiliates Program institutional team of five members responsible for coordinating local efforts, communicating with the Carnegie Foundation, and representing the campus (with at least one member of the team) at yearly CASTL convenings
  • Administrative engagement with, commitment to, and support of the scholarship of teaching and learning and the CASTL Affiliates Program, including funding of travel expenses to convenings, bringing visibility to the scholarship of teaching and learning within the institution, and creating public occasions to share progress and results
  • Movement toward acknowledgement and encouragement of the scholarship of teaching and learning in faculty roles/rewards, promotion/tenure, institutional policy language/decisions, and allied initiatives to improve student learning
  • Commitment to collaboration among individuals, projects and programs working to foster and support the scholarship of teaching and learning
