Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

This is a research guide designed to help faculty and staff learn about SoTL, where they can publish or present on SoTL projects, and other resources.

About the Homegrown Program

Launched in 2012, the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Homegrown Program supports either a SoTL (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning) or a discipline-based research project that would be integrated into classroom or out-of-classroom teaching.  For non-instructional academic staff, the project would include intensive development of a program to foster effective student learning.

A Call for Proposals and application to serve as a SoTL Homegrown participant for the following academic year is typically shared with the campus community early to mid-spring.  Watch for these in CLIC communications and Staff Digest submissions.

  • Participation involves; attending workshops (full day workshops typically scheduled in May and August plus additional shorter sessions throughout the academic year)
  • Presenting final work at a SoTL Poster Showcase
  • Helping to promote/champion the SoTL Homegrown program
  • $1000 stipends are awarded (75% paid upon commencing the project and the final 25% processed upon completion of the project the following spring)


Apply for the 2021/2022 SoTL Homegrown Cohort

Accepting proposals/applications for the 2021-2022 SoTL Homegrown Cohort. Submission extended deadline is May 10, 2021

SoTL Homegrown Showcase

2020-2021 SoTL Homegrown Poster Showcase

March 25, 2021

Noon - 1:30 p.m.

Check out the Event Schedule and Session Details here!

In non-covid times, our SoTL Showcase historically has allowed attendees to mingle to view the SoTL cohort presentations/posters and visit with the presenters and other attendees/colleagues. This year, we hope to replicate that warm open-house style format online. Please see the session SoTL Showcase 2021 Schedule. We encourage you to mingle across sessions during the allotted timeframes. Come and go in and out of sessions, ask questions, visit and CELEBRATE the work of as many SoTL Homegrown cohort members as your schedule allows.
