The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is the systematic study of and reflection on teaching and learning in higher ed, generally undertaken by examining one’s own courses as an exercise in formative assessment. SoTL also entails the dissemination of that assessment to other scholars. In his seminal work Scholarship Reconsidered, Ernest Boyer argued that teaching can be scholarly work by applying to the classroom the same “exacting standards of evaluation used in research.”
