Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is the systematic study of teaching and learning to improve student learning and optimize educational experiences in post-secondary environments.
“SoTL invites professionals to examine their own classroom practice, record their successes and failures, and ultimately share their experiences so that others may reflect on their findings and build upon teaching and learning processes. In this respect, SoTL serves as a conduit for disseminating contemporary research findings and making accessible practical applications of educational theories and practices related to teaching and learning for all stakeholders in education” (Hutchings & Shulman, 1999)”
