"The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is an approach to college and university teaching that views classrooms (and other learning spaces) as sites for inquiry, innovation, and knowledge-building.
In SoTL, you, the educator, look closely and critically at your students' learning to improve your own courses and programs. You also go public with insights, experiences and results that colleagues can evaluate and build on.
By doing SoTL, you advance the profession of teaching in higher education by joining pedagogical conversations in and across institutions and fields"
