The Jane and Ron Graham Centre for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning supports the rigorous study, development and application of teaching and learning approaches that have the power to transform the future of education.
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) benefits us all
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is the systematic study of teaching practices and learning experiences, where the goal is to improve student learning in the classroom or discipline. SoTL involves reflecting on your own teaching practicves, exploring the scholarly literature and learning, engaging in research about these practices, and then disseminating findings to others. SoTL research can be conducted within and between disciplines.
Located in USask's College of Education, the Jane and Ron Graham Centre for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning was created to support the rigorous study, development, and application of teaching and learning approaches that have the power to transform the future of education.
The SoTL Centre provides a place for faculty, students, and researchers to examine their classroom practices with a goal of sharing their experiences in ways that enhance the application of teaching and learning practices to benefit all stakeholders in education, and it provides a space and community for interdisciplinary researchg on teaching and learning across disciplines.
In partnership with Curriculum Studies, the SoTL Centre offers graduate programs and professional events to develop leaders who can use SoTL to create change in their own organizations. Our graduate and certificate programs are the first in Canada to prepare professionals who specialize in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.
We work collaboratively with the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching and Learning, the University Library, the Department of Curriculum Studies, and across disciplines to enhance teaching and learning practices at the University of Saskatchewan and beyond.
