Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Compared to even a decade ago, the phrase "scholarship of teaching and learnng," or SoTL, is more commonplace in the academy. Websites, scholarly journals, international conferences and institutes showcase a focus on teaching as a worthy aspect of faculty inquiry.

Three scholars involved in SoTL work from its initiation—Pat Hutchings, Mary Taylor Huber, and Anthony Ciccone—review the lessons from two decades of work as well as emerging challenges in The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Reconsidered: Institutional Integration and Impact. Their 2011 analysis is especially interesting for the learning communities movement since its historical trajectory has been informed by the work of SoTL practitioners.

Washington Center and the WA State Board for Community and Technical Colleges are collaborating to sponsor a SoTL institute focused on Cultivating Equity Mindsets and Addressing Opportunity Gaps.
