An Introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Event Date & Time

  • December 6, 2021
    1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Event Description

The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) uses systematic inquiry into student learning with the goal of advancing the practice of teaching by making inquiry findings public (Hutchings, & Shulman, 1999). During this session we will break down the definition of SoTL, explain the value of inquiry for determining the impact of teaching practices on student learning, and how to start the journey of becoming a SoTL practitioner. This workshop will offer attendees a chance to develop a deeper understanding of SoTL and learn how to overcome some of the most common challenges for initiating a SoTL project in their own classrooms.
