"This programme promotes scholarship as a means of pedagogical growth and improved learning. Programme Co-ordinator Dorothy Spiller encouraged me to engage in action research into her own teaching. I credit this programme with opening my eyes to the research opportunities that tertiary teaching practice offers and to the long-term benefits this scholarship has for student learning."
