Building: VMP 8 Floor: 2 Room: 206
This panel is conceived in the best traditions of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL), which builds upon the recognition of the reciprocal relationship between teaching and research. Acknowledging that most teachers in higher education have a strong identity as researchers, SOTL encourages teaching staff to use their disciplinary research skills and apply them in order to investigate the efficiency of their teaching and the impact it has on student learning. Therefore, purpose of the panel is to propagate scholarly enquiry into the teaching and learning process—an idea that stands at the heart of the activities of the Teaching and Learning Politics standing group. The panel will consist of one or two papers that discuss the best practices in SOTL and research papers in which panelist inquire into their own classroom practice and its effect on student learning, putting SOTL into practice.
