CASTL Higher Education Collection(from the Gallery of Teaching and Learning). A selected collection of websites that include faculty teaching portfolios and scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) projects that display the inquiry, processes, and reflections of faculty from disciplines including (but not limited to) mathematics, psychology, and music.
Since 1998, the following scholarly and professional societies have indicated their support for the scholarship of teaching and learning, and/or worked directly with The Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
The CASTL Campus Program, coordinated with Carnegie’s partner the American Association for Higher Education (AAHE), organized institutions of all types to cultivate the conditions necessary to support the scholarship of teaching and learning. See a list of participating campuses from 2000 to 2006. Some of the best and most lasting work in the scholarship of teaching and learning has occurred within the context of campus collaboration around shared themes, interests, and values; twelve of these partnerships made up the Campus Program Leadership Clusters from 2002 to 2005.
Between 1998 and 2006, The Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning has worked with individual faculty, campuses, and scholarly and professional societies in an effort to help foster and build a scholarship of teaching and learning.
The CASTL Institutional Leadership Program builds on the influential work undertaken by colleges and universities, campus centers and educational organizations, scholarly and professional societies, and CASTL Campus Program Leadership Clusters, to facilitate collaboration among institutions with demonstrated commitment to and capacity for action, inquiry and innovation in the scholarship of teaching and learning.
In its study of nursing education, the Foundation seeks to understand the demands of learning to be a nurse and the most effective strategies for teaching nursing. As part of Carnegie’s Preparation for the Professions Program (PPP), this study takes a comparative perspective to the issues of teaching, learning, assessment, and curriculum in nursing education.
Getting Ideas into Action: Building Networked Improvement Communities in Education
In this Carnegie essay by Anthony Bryk, Louis Gomez and Alicia Grunow, the authors argue that the social organization of the research enterprise is badly broken and a very different alternative is needed. They instead support a science of improvement research and introduce the idea of a networked improvement community that creates the purposeful collective action needed to solve complex educational problems.
