The Continuum Model of Scholarship

The Continuum Model of Scholarship has emerged from the college-based higher education (CBHE) sector and is presented here by Dr Dave Collins as a possible new way of reflecting upon scholarship. It would hope to facilitate discussions between individuals and their mentors or supervisors regarding engagement in scholarship and has the potential as a developmental tool for the integration of scholarship within learning and teaching in higher education. The Continuum Model of Scholarship has been developed in alignment with the UK Professional Standards Framework (UKPSF) for Teaching and Supporting Learning and would be of interest to those with responsibility for the enhancement of teaching and learning and associated scholarship across a wide variety of institutional settings.

CDF 2021-22 - Utilising the Professional Standards Framework for teaching and supporting learning for strategic transformation

It is widely recognized the PSF is a useful tool in understanding and developing teaching practices. This project includes eight examples of best practices, guiding principles, and corresponding practices for institutions aiming to further their strategic goals through the purposeful and strategic deployment of the PSF.

The principal aim of the project is to collate and curate a small number of institutional case studies that identify and explain how the PSF has been utilised in institutional initiatives designed to achieve strategic change and/or institutional transformation.

The Report and the Case Studies

A variety of UK and international Higher Education providers are represented in the collection. The eight case studies are written by those with responsibility for AHE-accredited CPD, and senior leaders with ultimate responsibility for teaching and learning at their institution.
