    1. Boyer's original text is almost 30 years old, and this 2015 reprint begins with essays on how his argument has impacted higher education in those decades.Boyer argues that scholarship should be redefined to consist of discovery, integration, application and teaching. Scholarship of discovery is what we traditionally think of as scholarship: original research. Scholarship of integration is interdisciplinary and collaborative; Boyer doesn't really offer specific examples of any of these types of s [...]


    2. What exactly do we mean when we say scholarship? On some level, it's simply whatever scholars do when they're not teaching or in meetings or preparing for class. It is, in the popular conception, research: spending time in laboratories, pouring through sources, writing out one's thoughts-- communicating creative ideas based on original research, meaningfully reviewed by one's peers, and communicated with one's field. It is the production of knowledge.Yet (at my institution at least) there has lo [...]


    3. This is an important book in the academic world. Boyer provided new insights on what kind of scholarship faculty members should be engaged in.

    4. This is a short and informal report, so there's not a whole lot to say about it; I did find the guidelines to be reasonable and a good jumping-off point for new ideas. This came out twenty years ago but never seemed terribly dated, except when it talked about steadily improving job prospects for college graduates.


    5. This book is really a report based on a survey of faculties in 1989. While the academic job market is much tighter than then, the issues addressed have not substantially changed in the past 20+ years. I read it as part of new faculty orientation, and hope it means that my college has a broader perspective on what constitutes scholarship.
