The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is research geared towards investigating what happens in the classroom with the intent of improving teaching and learning. SoTL research can answer questions such as what effect did the strategy have on student learning, how did I teach a specific concept, what are the differences between courses or students, or what does the literature say is the best practice to teach a particular concept. The results of these investigations provide the evidence-based practices that inform scholarly teaching.
