What does scholarship mean?<BR>How has it come to shape the structure of higher education?<BR>What should its role be?<BR>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.<BR>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.<BR>"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.<BR>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.
