Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

To find SoTL literature, good general search engines to start with include http://scholar.google.com/ and http://eric.ed.gov/?advanced. There may also be a literature database specific to your discipline (e.g., statistics education has https://www.causeweb.org/research/literature/). There are also many journals and conferences that specialize in SoTL, as listed below. For additional outlets, go to the UTEP Library homepage click "Search & Find" on the top bar, click on "Course reserves" in the first column, type "CETaL" for the course name, click on the Bishop-Clark material and log in to access it. SoTL will be a big part of the August 21,2014 Fall Faculty Retreat: Click here to register!
