Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

"The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is systematic inquiry into student learning and/or one’s own teaching practices in higher education which involves methodologically sound application of appropriate research methods, peer review, and distribution as scholarly work."

CETL supports faculty members conducting SoTL research in the following ways:

  •  SoTL Programs and Resources
  • An online SoTL Scholars program that supports faculty as they complete a SoTL project over the course of one year.
  • The annual Research on Teaching and Learning Summit, a conference held here at KSU.
  • A SoTL Listserv that updates the campus community on SoTL opportunities at KSU.
  • Faculty Learning Communities in which faculty investigate a particular teaching and learning issue for a full academic year.
  • SoTL Travel Funds to support faculty who are presenting their SoTL research or attending SoTL conferences.
  • A directory of journals that publish SoTL research focused on college/university teaching.
  • A directory of conferences that focus on college/university teaching.
  • Links to resources related to SoTL work.
  • Individual consultations with faculty (contact Hillary Steiner, CETL Associate Director for SoTL, to set up a consultation).
