About the Institute

Institute for Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

  • a nexus for communication and collaboration, providing resources and coordinating initiatives locally, regionally, nationally;
  • a community of scholars collaboratively advancing the existing body of knowledge about teaching and learning;
  • a research centre facilitating and supporting investigation leading to deeper understanding of and sustained improvement in student learning.


We support evidence-based study of teaching and learning which is:

  • focused on student learning, grounded in context, methodologically sound, conducted in partnership with students, and publicly disseminated (Felten, 2013);
  • inclusive and unified by its potential to have impact in the classroom and to contribute to the production of knowledge and ongoing improvement in teaching and learning;
  • diverse in discipline, theory, methodology, and method.
