Aims and Scope

Typically published twice per year, the journal seeks to foster the following:

  • Encourage critical conversations about SoTL from faculty members with international and/or interdisciplinary perspectives;
  • Contribute to conversations about differences in effective teaching practices among institutional contexts, including traditional and non-traditional learning environments (i.e., online/hybrid models; interdisciplinary programs; heterogeneous student populations);
  • Provide a forum for faculty and course instructors to reflect upon and share strategies, outcomes or projected outcomes, and recommendations resulting from their engagement with new, innovative, and/or revisioned teaching practices.
