What is the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (sotl)?
Instructors who systematically study effective teaching and/or student learning and share their work through presentations and publications embody the practice of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Approaches to SoTL can vary by discipline, but the common theme is scholarly research on evidence-based practice as defined and implemented by instructors in their courses.
At UW-Platteville, the TTC supports SoTL by fostering instructor inquiry into teaching and building interdisciplinary communities that support and refine this inquiry.
SoTL facilitates improvement of undergraduate learning by engaging the scholarly talents and dedication of faculty and instructional staff. Examples of questions that can form the basis of SoTL projects include:
- Which active learning strategies improve student learning in my classroom?
- How does the size of my classes impact student learning?
- Which strategies for group work aid individual learning in my discipline?
- What types of examples enhance and improve student learning?
- How can technology help students learn higher order thinking skills?
- Does directed reflection enhance learning?
