MSU Denver

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a growing field of scholarship in higher education. SoTL fosters a scholarly approach to teaching, engages faculty in reflective practice about their work, and provides an avenue for a peer-reviewed source of evidence to reward teaching.

Some of the many benefits of engaging in SoTL include:

  • Improving student learning through the exploration and development of best practice in teaching and learning
  • Furthering a culture of reflective, evidence-based teaching at MSU Denver
  • Developing community among faculty across disciplines
  • Increasing the exposure of teacher-scholars at MSU Denver through public scholarship


Faculty Learning Community

The CTLD will offer a Scholarship in Teaching and Learning Faculty Learning Community (FLC) during the 2022-23 academic year. Faculty and staff are encouraged to join to learn about SoTL, further an ongoing SoTL project, or develop a new project around a burning question or idea.
