Research and Scholarly Activity

Guiding innovation and research on education.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) aims to improve student outcomes by exploring the impact and effectiveness of teaching practices. Research avenues in SoTL include investigations of technology-enhanced learning approaches and of how to create positive changes in pedagogy. Discipline-specific student learning inquiries can be conducted in partnership with students and are subject to research ethics approval. SoTL results should also be disseminated and there are several local, provincial, national and international societies dedicated to supporting SoTL that offer opportunities for conference participation and publication in peer-reviewed journals.
