Finding New Paths: Leveraging the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning for Enhanced Librarianship

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)  can offer new ways for librarians to consider and study our practice, suggest new partners in classroom-based research, provide new opportunities for dissemination, and lead to better integration of our work and expertise within academia. There are strong parallels between SoTL and information literacy (IL) research and the fields have much to offer each other. The SoTL literature offers a broad range of discipline-based methods that may spark ideas for investigating student learning and research that can inform our teaching. The presenters will review SoTL basics, and ask participants to scan recent SoTL research and discuss ways to adapt ideas from these studies to their own teaching and research work. We will conclude by sharing ideas on how librarians can get started in their own SoTL work or partner with other faculty who are conducting pedagogical research.
