Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

SOTL involves taking a scholarly approach to teaching just as we would to any other area of knowledge-making. These bi-monthly sessions familiarize participants with the purpose and influence of this burgeoning field and prepare them for success in presenting and publishing their own scholarship related to teaching and learning.jane



Dr. JaneE Hindman is the Facilitator of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Program at QCC. With a comfortable but focused style, she strengthens our faculty's teaching and scholarship methods so that they can enhance their effectiveness with students and improve students' success.

What is SoTL?

It is the -

  • Reflecting on student learning [and on teaching] in order to improve courses and programs
  • Sharing reflections with community of educators
  • Using evidence-gathering and documentation strategies to make student learning visible

SoTL is important to me as a teacher because…

  • Helps me better achieve my goals for students' learning
    • Makes accessible others' solutions to common teaching/learning problems
  • Situates me in a community of other teachers
    • Provides an audience of like-minded colleagues engaged in the specific, disciplinary work I do

Why is it important?

    • To me as a scholar
      • Helps me work toward tenure even if and when much of my time is focused on teaching
        • Conference presentations about teaching
        • Scholarly articles about teaching
