At the CFD, we view education scholarship as the foundation of high quality educational design, curriculum development, teaching and assessment. We define education scholarship as the development and evaluation of education activities, programs, and products, informed by both practice-based and research-based knowledge. Processes of knowledge mobilization connect education scholarship with basic education research.
Education scholarship as a process involve needs assessment, literature review, curricular development and implementation, and evaluation. Quick references and useful readings about each of these components are included on our getting funded/started page. Scholars and researchers must consider the ethics and impact of their work throughout the process.
