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, August, and January 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)

SoTL Homegrown Showcase

The SoTL Homegrown Showcase historically has allowed attendees to mingle to view the SoTL cohort presentations/posters and visit with the presenters and other attendees/colleagues. This open-house style format is typically held in mid March and we invite our campus community and beyond to attend sessions, ask questions, visit and celebrate the work of the SoTL Homegrown cohort scholars.
