The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is the systematic study of student learning in an attempt to find out what works best. Similar to researchers in other academic disciplines, SoTL scholars adopt an empirical approach to studying teaching and learning and endeavour to make their research findings public via conferences and refereed publications, with the added benefit of being able to apply their findings to their own teaching practices.
