Title: Leading Up in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Author: Miller-Young, Janice E.; Anderson, Catherine; Kiceniuk, Deborah; Mooney, Julie; Riddell, Jessica; Schmidt Hanbidge, Alice; Ward, Veronica; Wideman, Maureen A.; and Chick, Nancy
Abstract: Scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) scholars, including those who are not in formal positions of leadership, are uniquely positioned to engage in leadership activities that can grow the field, influence their colleagues, and effect change in their local contexts as well as in institutional, disciplinary, and the broader Canadian contexts. Drawing upon the existing SoTL literature and our own diverse experiences, we propose a framework that describes institutional contexts in terms of local SoTL activity (microcultures) and administrative support (macro-level) and use it to describe the many ways that SoTL scholars can and do “lead up” to effect change depending on their own context. We conclude by inviting scholars to consider, reflect upon, and experiment with their leadership activities, not only for their own professional growth but also to contribute to the literature in this area.
