Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Defined as the “integration, application and transmission of knowledge” (Kreber, 2002, p. 6), the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) could be viewed as the pinnacle of the teaching practice in the academic world. It represents knowledge about excellence and expertise of teaching that is shared in a peer-reviewed format, allowing for the dissemination and critique of teaching practice to the greater community. The shared aspect of the scholarship of teaching, which can take place in different formats, from academic journal publications to teaching portfolios, can also be used as a form of educational development, as suggested by Taylor and Colet (2010).
As you consider applying for, or adjudicating, awards and grants whether with the Werklund School of Education, the University of Calgary or from an external entity, we encourage you to consider the guidelines that the university has drafted to acknowledge and foster greater equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in our award and grant processes.
