Disciplinary Styles in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: Exploring Common Ground

Disciplinary Styles coverIn response to an orienting essay raising questions about location of the scholarship of teaching and learning within the disciplines, scholars from ten fields describe the evolution of discourse about teaching and learning in their field; the ways in which their discipline’s style of discourse influences inquiry into teaching and learning; and the nature and role of intellectual exchange across disciplines around such inquiry. The essays in Disciplinary Styles reflect the disciplinary differences in approaching the scholarship of teaching and learning, but their authors, along with Mary Taylor Huber and Sherwyn Morreale, recognize the necessity of fostering intellectual trading zones between disciplines to deepen student learning, strengthen their minds and character, and enrich their lives and communities.
