Personal Reflection: Playing for SoTL Impact: A Personal Reflection
Simmons, Nicola
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v3 n2 Article 30 Jul 2009
In this personal reflection, a researcher describes exploring the ways in which SoTL scholars, often with few supports and little training in this kind of research, develop a personal/professional identity, and the supports and challenges to that identity formation. The researcher is also in a relatively new role at the University of Waterloo where she is responsible for supporting and growing the scholarship of teaching and learning at the university. She ponders the fantastic work that is being done by her individual faculty members, staff, and support through departments and across the institution. As a board member of the Society for Teaching and Learning Higher Education (STLHE) and Vice-President, SoTL portfolio, she must also think about ways of moving SoTL forward at the national level and beyond. These roles are both separate and aligned, and often create a wonderful synergy.
