Abstract

One aspect of the curriculum refresh project that has received relatively little fanfare is that of the teaching/research nexus. While this concept encompasses a number of different modes, emphasis tends to lie on discipline research as a means of informing teaching. Inevitably this focus reflects academics’ own identity as discipline scholars and the traditional image of academics expert in their discipline. In this session, the presenters open up the possibilities of expanding academics’ discipline identity to embrace the scholarship of teaching and learning through another domain of the teaching/research nexus – that of research on our own teaching. This session takes participants on a guided tour of strategies on, and approaches to, this aspect of the scholarship of teaching and learning. In doing so, it underscores the value of such research to curriculum and also to our identity as educators in the tropics.
