What does scholarship mean?
How has it come to shape the structure of higher education?
What should its role be?
Discussions about the nature and role of scholarship have a long tradition, from Aristotle to Boyer, and the term is often perceived as complex and ambiguous.
At the same time, determining what 'scholarship' stands for is critical, as it is a concept central to the function of higher education, influencing higher education practice and policy throughout the world.
"The Challenge to Scholarship" is a lively and engaging investigation that seeks to establish what it means to be a scholar and the value of scholarship. It addresses current concerns and tensions including the scholarship of teaching and the relationship between teaching and research.
Gill Nicholls gets right to the heart of the debate over scholarship.and declares that a reconceptualization of scholarship within universities is required, outlining the changes involved and the practical implications for higher education institutions of the future.
