Scholarship of Teaching and Learning - a sector wide study

In 2015 Academic Staff Development along with 3 other UK universities won the tender from the HEA to conduct a 6-month research project into - Teaching and Learning (SoTL): A sector wide study.

SoTL is a model that is used in the Higher Education (HE) sector (particularly in North America, Australasia, UK, South Africa and some European and south-east Asian countries) to reflect on, and transform, teaching and learning practices. It focuses on teaching and learning strategies underpinning the curriculum, and promotes research-informed teaching. SoTL is a research-led form of professional development, and has the potential to inform policy and practice at institutional level, for example, in career development and in the promotion and recognition of teaching excellence.
