The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) synthesises learning, teaching and research that enables academics to bring their research skills as scholars to their practices and innovations as teachers.
It is an ongoing and systematic process that involves asking meaningful questions that matter to student learning,
Using literature to inform the development of the questions, collecting and analysing data/evidence, and disseminating findings to peers/academic community and contributing to the body of SoTL knowledge.
One of the elements of SoTL work is the relevance of human research ethics application, which often requires the careful assessment of the risks that a SoTL project potentially entails.
