Promoting a community of learning

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Faculty Scholars program builds and supports a community of faculty scholars interested in conducting and engaging in the scholarship of teaching and learning. Faculty scholars are provided with a stipend and other resources for their work over a 12-month period, and are asked to share their scholarship and learning outcomes at venues within and beyond the University setting.

The SoTL Faculty Scholars program is intended to build a community of faculty who engage in scholarship to (1) identify and adopt best practices into their own teaching and (2) explore and measure the effectiveness of their own teaching and learning practices on student learning.
