ISSOTL Online 2013, hosted by International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in cooperation with the Center for Engaged Learning at Elon University, begins September 9, 2013, and continues through September 28, 2013. It offers three complementary strands:
- Introduction to SoTL focuses on points of debate in the field’s history, facilitates discussion of seminal readings, and situates emerging trends in relation to the field’s development.
- Studying and Designing for Transfer introduces transfer theories, investigates connections with SoTL, and explores future directions in transfer research and its implications for curriculum design. This topic crosses disciplinary boundaries and draws from recent multi-institutional research initiatives on transfer.
- Student Voices: This online pre-conference strand explores the roles students can take in SoTL and the expertise they bring to our work.
