Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) occurs when faculty engage in systematic inquiry (potentially in collaboration with other faculty or with students), that is informed by prior published scholarship, advances an understanding of pedagogy, and is shared with a broader audience.

In 2022, Bradley will host a series of events to help faculty plan, conduct and evaluate their own SoTL projects. Up to Ten Bradley faculty participants will each receive a $1,500 stipend for full participation in the SoTL series, including monthly meetings with their SoTL mentor during the Fall 2022 semester and presentations of their SoTL research during the 2023 Spring Forum. A call for participants will be announced no later than February 7 and applications will be due on March 4.
