Despite moves in the academic marketplace to broaden the definition of scholarship to include teaching and learning along with research, the value of teaching continues to be perceived as relatively low and not readily transferable from institution to institution. Our purpose here is to try to draw attention to that differential bargaining power so that perhaps some tentative first steps could be taken to remedy it. One idea for establishing appropriate value of teaching in the academic marketplace is to devise and use an infrastructure similar to that which exists for research. We provide a draft outlining one possible parallel infrastructure.
