Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), an established, international field of scholarly inquiry and practice-based research, aims to enhance the postsecondary educational experience and advance the practice of teaching by grounding it in evidence of improved student learning.
As part of our mandate, the FCDC undertakes SoTL projects and supports or collaborates with faculty in the development of SoTL projects, leading to conference presentations, publications and externally-funded research projects. Current and recently completed projects, presentations and publications are listed on our Research Projects & Publications [hyperlink] page.
FCDC staff are also active contributors to national and provincial associations that advance research in educational development and technology-enabled learning, including the Council of Ontario Educational Developers (COED), the Ontario Universities Council on e-Learning (OUCEL), the Educational Developers Caucus (EDC) and the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (STLHE).
If you wish to learn more about SoTL or if you’re interested in undertaking a SoTL project or collaborating with the FCDC in collaborative course-based research, please get in touch or drop in for a visit.
