Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

 

How to get started with SoTL?

Have a look at the Vanderbilt Center for Teaching’s SoTL Guide: https://my.vanderbilt.edu/sotl/

The Higher Education Academy UK have also published a very useful guide: https://www.heacademy.ac.uk/system/files/getting_started_ped_research.pdf
