The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is a growing field in academe and one that is garnering a lot of attention and spurring a number of new journals dedicated to teaching and learning. In Educational Development, we encourage and help support instructors to engage in the active inquiry of teaching and learning. It is by investigating, exploring and reflecting on teaching and learning that we develop and foster improvement in learning for our students. We offer consultations on research design and question(s), or other issues related to the scholarship of teaching and learning.
The Educational Development team offers resources around conducting SoTL. Our team also provides one-on-one or group consultations at any stage of your SoTL project.
The AVPA has a few awards for SoTL research.
The Graduate Student Teaching Development Program (TDP) offers funding for graduate students to propose, initiate, research and disseminate the results of a three-semester research project that investigates an aspect of teaching and learning in the post-secondary context.
