Abstract 

This paper reflects current views of scholarly teaching which focus on improving student learning through good teaching practice. Consistent with these views is acceptance of the idea that the scholarship of teaching involves being informed by scholarly discourse on learning and teaching, reviewing practice in the context of this discourse, and communicating new understandings back to the scholarly community. The paper also reflects a view of scholarly e-teaching founded in principles emerging from the same discourse, but extended by perspectives and experiences associated with the e-learning environment. We illustrate this view of scholarship by describing a faculty-based initiative to support scholarly e-teaching and commenting on what we have learned from it.
