Educational Scholarship


Three components of the General Approach to Educational Scholarship discussed on this website are curriculum development, creating a teaching portfolio, and scholarship in education.

To define an educational work as scholarly, it must advance knowledge, be disseminated, and be open to review. Educational scholarship can involve products such as a new curriculum, new methods for information organization or delivery, educational interventions, and educational research and should focus on outcomes.

  • Educational scholarship is demonstrated when knowledge is advanced through a product that can be disseminated. Curriculum evaluation that is disseminated is an example of scholarly work.
  • While the goal of outcomes measurement for educational interventions should be focused toward improved health outcomes, it may be more practical to focus on changes in clinician behavior first.
