Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL)

Supporting instructors in the scholarship of teaching and learning

We offer three opportunities related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Follow the links in the sidebar for full information, or read brief descriptions of each below.

SoTL Faculty Learning Community (FLC)

In the SoTL FLC, instructors read books and articles related to SoTL and then meet as a group for discussions throughout the semester. The topics for the FLC change each semester. Past topics have included: evaluating student learning and research about remote instruction.


SoTL Grants

The goal of our SoTL Grants is to foster a culture of evidence-based research designed to contribute new knowledge related to teaching and learning at UVA. Funding supports (1) faculty conducting SoTL research, (2) a group of faculty working on a common SoTL project, or (3) faculty who have conducted a SoTL project and are working toward disseminating their research.

The program is designed to guide faculty 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.
