About Us

SoTL Canada is an affiliated group of STLHE which provides a targeted opportunity for SoTL scholars to form a community to share findings and challenges, to engage in opportunities for broader dissemination of SoTL work, and to consider ways to catalyze SoTL initiatives at the institutional, regional, national, and international levels.
