Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL)

Supporting instructors in the scholarship of teaching and learning

The Center for Teaching Excellence is offering two programs related to the the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Please note that the applications for these programs are separate.


SoTL Scholars Program

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) program is a framework designed to guide UVA instructors through the systematic study of teaching and learning using methods appropriate to disciplinary epistemologies. This year-long program provides faculty with the knowledge, skills, and supportive community needed to create classroom-focused research projects that can enhance teaching for themselves and others.

*New* SoTL Faculty Learning Community (FLC)

Beginning in Fall 2020, CTE will also be offering a SoTL FLC. In the FLC, faculty read books and articles related to SoTL, and then they meet as a group for discussions throughout the semester (most likely the meetings will be virtual). Faculty can participate in the FLC and the SoTL Scholars Program simultaneously if they wish. A short application is required to participate; please see the SoTL FLC page for full details.
