Abstract

This Integrative Chapter outlines how one person's practice reflects the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) principles. It opens with a brief discussion of this career and how the purpose of it of late has been to address the needs of those involved in the TEYL community of practice. The Integrative Chapter then briefly discusses Boyer's work on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and, within this discussion, highlights his four functions of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, which are: The Scholarship of Discovery The Scholarship of Integration The Scholarship of Application The Scholarship of Teaching (Boyer, 1990) These four functions of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning create the background against which are presented aspects of this practice and publications to illustrate how they fit within each of these functions. Additionally, within each function, there are descriptions of the publications submitted, and, where relevant, the overlapping and linked work on the Masters in Teaching English to Young Learners. Discussion further illustrates how this practice particularly focuses on addressing the needs of those in the TEYL community of practice, including young learners, teachers, teacher trainers, teaching associations and publishers. Within the Integrative Chapter is shown the way in which, within the spirit of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, this career has tried to address gaps in the provision of continuing professional development courses for those involved in Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) and for other professional needs within the field of TEYL and the wider TEYL community of practice.
