Boyer's Model

Scholarly activites to meet faculty schoalrship requirements.


Scholarship of Integration

"Integration is the disciplined work that makes connections among isolated works and fields, placing facts into context, interprets, and draws new insight into research." – Boyer, 1990

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

"Teaching begins with what the teacher knows. Teachers must be well informed.  It continues by educating and enticing students through transmitting knowledge as well as transforming and extending it."  -Boyer, 1990

Scholarship of Application

"Service activities must be tied directly to one's special field of knowledge and relate to, and flow directly out of, this professional activity. Such service is serious, demanding work, requiting the rigor--and the accountability...In application activities, theory and practice vitally interact, and one renews the other."  - Ernest Boyer, 1990

Identifying Scholarship

The term scholarship is applied to distinct and interrelated concepts, such as scholarly skills, engagement, activities, processes, or outcomes.   Each of these applications merits discussion.  Here we will focus on what scholarship is, as a measurable outcome. Below are common criteria and skills used to demonstrate if work aligns to a scholarship outcome.  These were compiled from the sources listed at the bottom of this page.
