Scholarship is composed of four distinct domains:
- Scholarship of Teaching—communicating one’s knowledge effectively to learners.
- Scholarship of Integration—looking for connections and relationships.
- Scholarship of Application—building bridges between theory and practice.
- Scholarship of Discovery—research.
The stage of each faculty member’s career influences their degree of engagement in the various domains, and affects the focus, roles and the kind of scholarship he or she employs.
To aid in development of scholarship in all domains, the Faculty of Medicine & Dentistry offers workshops and seminars, guides and peer-assessment tools, and contacts for information, guidance and support.
