  8. 8. Less tangible products  Raising the profile of subject/department/University publicly  Increased personal motivation/interest/vigour in teaching  Enhanced respect  Public recognition/esteem  Evidence to argue for promotion
  9. 9. Making a difference: evidence of impact  Evidence of better/effective/efficient teaching/enhanced student achievement  Evidence that others use your ideas  Evidence of engagement with your ideas (e.g. book sales, reference to your approach)  Evidence of effectively promoting your subject  Evidence of changes in policy/organisation/ content/perceptions/value due to you These may be local, national, international
  10. 10. Scholarly activity  Scholarly activity is wide ranging  Engaged in to the full, it produces scholars and scholarship  Scholarship has the potential to promote the University and its scholars  Where it is ignored:  It is a missed opportunity for promotion of the institution/faculty/department  It risks a narrower and, I believe, poorer intellectual ethos.

  12. 12. To conclude  Where scholarly activity has a narrow interpretation, scholarly activity and scholarship may not be understood.  In which case, scholarship may be interpreted narrowly as dabbling in research.  Some may need to be enlightened.  Some may need to be enlightened more than once.
