Getting Started with SoTL Series

Working Sessions:
Getting started with SoTL
Asking SoTL Research Questions
Designing SoTL Research
Sharing SoTL Findings


Ever wonder why a particular activity was successful, or unsuccessful? The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) focuses on improving student learning through scholarly inquiry into teaching and learning practices (ISSOTL, n.d.).

In this series, we’ll explore what is SoTL, how to get started with SoTL questions, designing SoTL projects, and sharing findings.

The series will consist of short asynchronous videos and synchronous working sessions. The videos will be posted in advance of the working sessions. Join one session or join them all! If you have any questions, please contact us at cte@capilanou.ca.
