About SoTL
Teaching can always become more effective and learning more significant and enduring.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) engages individuals in designing, conducting, and publishing research on teaching and learning. SoTL emphasizes that teaching is a serious intellectual activity that can be both deeply personal and highly collegial.

“SoTL differs from scholarly and reflective teaching in that it not only involves questioning one’s teaching or a teaching strategy, but also formally gathering and exploring evidence, researching the literature, refining and testing practices, and finally going public. The purpose of SoTL is not just to make an impact on student learning, but through formal, peer-reviewed communication, to contribute to the larger knowledge base on teaching and learning.” (Bishop-Clark and Dietz-Uhler, 2012)
