College Pedagogy IS A Major Area Of Scholarship!

Folks:

The website below offers some very useful information on college

teaching and scholarship. I have included a table of contents

showing the kinds of reference material available. My thanks to

Bruce Brikett at U.C. Berkeley for bringing this information to my

attention.

You can also find it by starting at http://aahe.ital.utexas.edu/

then under "resources" search for Nelson.

An earlier version was the stating point for the bibilography at the

Indiana U. SOTL site http://www.indiana.edu/~deanfac/sotl/

This provides an alternative source for many citations in electronic

form, but the links are not as recent as at the AAHE site.
