At GPRC, new knowledge is constantly being created, shared, and exchanged, both inside and outside the classroom.
Our faculty from across all schools and disciplines are often engaged in scholarly activities outside of their ordinary teaching duties. These can include conducting research, creating art or musical compositions, or working with industry to apply existing knowledge in new contexts. The word “scholarship” encompasses the many different types of research and innovative activities that take place at the College.
Scholarship outside the classroom can be one way instructors contribute to their fields, grow as academics, and increase their body of knowledge to pass on to students.
GPRC’s model of scholarship has five areas or ‘realms’. Learn about the realms of scholarship below and meet a few GPRC instructors who exemplify them. Which do you see yourself in?
Application – Applying knowledge to larger social/industrial governance needs; engagement with the broader community for mutual benefit.
Discovery and Creation –Applied research, artistic work, visual art, literature, academic research, invention of a new technology.
Integration – Identifying patterns and trends, synthesizing existing information and ideas for new perspectives; interdisciplinary; cross-trades/professions
Practice – Increasing personal depth of knowledge and currency in one’s own profession/discipline/trade.
Teaching and Learning – The systematic study of teaching and learning to obtain a deeper understanding of pedagogical theory and practice and to inform new practice.
