A learner's mind

is not so much a black box as a GRAY BOX with a dim view.

We can observe some of what goes in; we can exercise some control over how inputs are processed; and we can assess some of what comes out. The virtue of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is not that it gives us full command of the learning process but rather that it heightens our awareness of what we want students to learn, how we can structure their learning experiences, and how we will know that they have indeed learned.

This site offers

reflection and resources on SoTL.

Although there will be an emphasis on teaching and learning history (my field!), the site will also include more general considerations of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

Use the tabs above to navigate to the blog, general SoTL materials, and history SoTL materials.
