The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) uses systematic and methodological inquiry into teaching and learning (behaviours/practices, attitudes, and values) with the goal of improving teaching and learning by making findings public (Hutchings, & Shulman, 1999; Potter & Kustra, 2011).

During this session, we will:

  • Break down the definition of SoTL,
  • Explain how to start the journey of becoming a SoTL practitioner,
