Saint Louis University

The goal of the symposium is to showcase the SoTL work being conducted by Saint Louis University faculty and graduate students, and to promote a community of SoTL practitioners.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) involves researching questions about teaching activities and student learning by formally studying the teaching and learning activities of one's course; answering those questions by assessing student learning and effectiveness of teaching strategies; and publicly sharing results of this inquiry in a setting that invites peer review, such as a publication or conference presentation.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Symposium is held each fall and culminates in the presentation of the James H. Korn Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Award.

We are not currently accepting proposals.
