What is the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)?
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning is the developing field of original research & scholarship about teaching and learning practice specifically in the context of higher education. It is conducted by scholars from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds, who are interested in understanding student learning, innovations in teaching practice, and transformation of higher education.
The institute is:
- 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.
