Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v1 n1 Article 4 2010
The study investigates how university educational development centres in Canada currently support faculty in developing the skills and knowledge to engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning. Content analysis of centre websites was used to identify strategies used to support SoTL. The main strategies identified were providing information and grants. Recommendations include increasing the visibility of SoTL on centre websites and integrating it with other centre activities. The data question the viability of a national strategy to improve teaching through SoTL.
