John Ewing - Assistant Professor of Agricultural and Extension Education, Penn State University Park

Book Title: Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate

Author: Ernest L. Boyer

Book Description:

I chose this book, because it really helped shape, early in my career as a faculty member, my thinking about the scholarship of teaching, discovery (research), application, and integration. As an agricultural educator, I care about helping to develop college students into teachers that are prepared to enter the secondary classroom and teach students about the agricultural sciences. I realized, by reading this book, that I could (and should) find a way to combine my passions of teaching, and research about teaching and learning. The book clearly illustrated to me the need for being able to take my research to the classroom; in this case to improve not only my own teaching, but also the teaching of my students.
