ab: Summary: In this chapter, the authors describe how one faculty memberâ€™s
attempt to improve student success in a special freshmen calculus
sequence for underprepared students evolved into scholarship of
teaching and learning. Key to this progression was collaboration with
academic support professionals and non-tenure track faculty. Thoughtful
discussions, a few trial interventions, and examining the research
literature enabled the group to move from reflection and
experimentation to scholarly teaching and then to the scholarship of
teaching and learning. After several years of collaborative effort, a
grant application to further develop, study, and share the results of
this work was submitted to the NSF.
