Diverse Methodological Approaches and Considerations for SoTL in Higher Education
Hubball, Harry; Clarke, Anthony
Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v1 n1 Article 2 2010
The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is a distinctive form of research that is shaped by multidisciplinary contexts and focuses on practice-driven institutional/curricula/classroom inquiries with an explicit transformational agenda. This essay provides critical insight to the importance of communities of SoTL practitioners, diverse investigations and methodological approaches within and across disciplines. For example, through an integrated and iterative process, a community of SoTL researchers plays a critical role to enhance and sustain on-going SoTL research. Equal to all forms of research endeavour, interpretations of SoTL research require a healthy scepticism, analysis of methodological rigour, and an openness to alternative perspectives and analysis.
