Hello SoTL Canada!
We are pleased to announce the publication of “SoTL within Canadian Contexts & Communities: The Collaborative Writing Groups Initiative” a special issue of The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (CJSoTL).
The special issue was guest edited by Nicola Simmons and CJSoTL Senior Editor Elizabeth Marquis. This issue was generated through a unique collaborative writing initiative facilitated by the SoTL Canada constituency of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. Through this initiative, teams of scholars from across Canada came together to co-author articles on teaching and learning topics of shared interest, including the development of SoTL in various institutional contexts and the questions of who does (or does not) engage in SoTL work.
“SoTL within Canadian Contexts & Communities: The Collaborative Writing Groups Initiative” makes a significant to the SoTL literature with the following articles:
