Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) - In context at the University of Glasgow

There are clear links between SoTL and the University of Glasgow’s Learning and Teaching Strategy, in particular with reference to the following strategic aims:

  • 'To ensure that staff have excellent skills in teaching and in motivating and supporting student learning, and that their excellence is recognised, celebrated and rewarded.
  • To develop a student-staff partnership model that promotes student engagement with learning, and enhances student success.' (page 3)

Thus, it would seem that all University of Glasgow staff who are involved in teaching and the support of student learning should be encouraged to engage in SoTL projects to some extent, in order to help improve their teaching and enhance the learning environment, and so work towards the Learning and Teaching Strategy of the University.
