Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate
By Ernest Boyer (1990)
- "Scholarship of Discovery"—"traditionally-conceived original research, committed "to knowledge for its own sake, to freedom of inquiry and to following, in a disciplined fashion, an investigation wherever it may lead" (Boyer 17);
- "Scholarship of Integration"—"serious, disciplined work that seeks to interpret, draw together, and bring new insight to bear on original research" that involves "doing research at the boundaries where fields converge,...making connections across the disciplines, placing the specialities in larger context, illuminating data in a revealing way, often educating nonspecialists, too" (Boyer 18-19);
- "Scholarship of Application"—"service activities" that are "tied directly to one's special field of knowledge and relate to, and flow directly out of, this professional activity" (Boyer 22);
- "Scholarship of Teaching"—"the self-conscious examination and practice of teaching in which "pedagogical procedures must be carefully planned, continuously examined, and relate directly to the subject taught," in order to "stimulate active, not passive, learning and encourage students to be critical, creative thinkers," in a process through which "faculty, as scholars, are also learners...pushed in creative new directions" (Boyer 23-24).
