Student Voices in 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.
For instructors engaging in SoTL “the work of the classroom [becomes] a site for inquiry, asking and answering questions about students’ learning in ways that can improve one’s own classroom and also advance the larger profession of teaching” (Huber and Hutchings, 2005).
