In the article, the author presents highlights from the scholarship of teaching engineering at San José State University (SJSU) in San José, USA, and he discusses the driving forces that have helped shape this scholarship. Significant quality improvements in several programmes have resulted from this effort. Although faculty initiative has played a key role in the success of these activities, it was the support from department chairs, the College Dean and the University Provost that helped create an atmosphere where the scholarship of teaching was encouraged, valued and rewarded through the retention, tenure and promotion process.
