Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Program is a faculty-driven initiative to improve undergraduate learning by fostering faculty inquiry into teaching practices and by building interdisciplinary communities that support and refine this inquiry. This innovative form of faculty development inspires and improves undergraduate learning by engaging the scholarly talents and dedication of the faculty. This model is being heralded as one that is transferable to other institutions. For example:

  • Can interactive exercises increase student learning?
  • Do students learn more in smaller classes?
  • Can group work aid individual learning?
  • Do examples enhance or confuse student learning?
  • Can technology help students do more than recall facts?
  • Does directed reflection enhance learning?

A variety of resources on SoTL are provided at the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
