Within the University, scholarship development is focussed on encouraging colleagues to disseminate their own knowledge, expertise and practice.
Acknowledging that there is a continuum between research and scholarship, we see scholarship as engaging in various formal and informal activities which stop short of undertaking formal research.
Scholarly activities can include:
- Presenting at conferences and events
- Reflective writing, including blogging
- Reviewing for journals
- Authoring short articles and think pieces,
- Engaging with disciplinary and professional networks in the sharing of practice and expertise
Mentoring for scholarship
There is a Scholarship Development strand of the University Mentoring Scheme which can match colleagues with experienced mentors to provide advice and guidance on how to progress your scholarly activity.
