Expertise and excellence in teaching and in SoTL are core to the notion of the LTS track, and can be a vehicle for developing leadership, esteem, and evidence for academic promotion. This session focuses on developing an understanding of SoTL, introduces the four scholarships of Boyer's 'scholarship reconsidered', and finishes with a framework for SoTL project design. During the session, we'll present examples of SoTL to give a feel for what constitutes SoTL in Higher Education. 

NB: We ask that you watch Prof. Fischbacher-Smith’s short presentation on academic promotion for context before attending (3 videos, ~25 minutes):
