Mapping the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning across Canada.

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • SoTL Canada recently conducted a survey to gain insight into the SoTL activities of faculty and staff at institutions of higher learning across Canada. In addition to demographic and institutional characteristics, participants (n=351) were asked questions regarding the type of SoTL work they are involved in; how SoTL research is being conducted in collaboration with students and colleagues; the integration of SoTL into job descriptions at institutions of higher learning across Canada; the level and type of funding received by SoTL practitioners in Canada; the methods through which SoTL research is disseminated in Canada; and the diversity of research being conducted by SoTL practitioners in Canada, including SoTL and non-SoTL. The information gathered from this survey was used to create a comprehensive “map” of SoTL activities across Canada. It is anticipated that this knowledge will yield many positive outcomes, such as facilitating collaborations, and leveraging expertise. SoTL Canada a récemment mené un sondage pour se faire une idée des activités SoTL des professeurs et du personnel des établissements d'enseignement supérieur du Canada. En plus des caractéristiques démographiques et institutionnelles, les participants (n = 351) ont été interrogés sur le type de travail SoTL dans lequel ils sont impliqués; comment la recherche SoTL est menée en collaboration avec des étudiants et des collègues; l'intégration de SoTL dans les descriptions de travail des établissements d'enseignement supérieur du Canada; le niveau et le type de financement reçu par les praticiens de SoTL au Canada; les méthodes de diffusion de la recherche sur le SoTL au Canada; et la diversité de la recherche menée par des praticiens de SoTL au Canada, y compris SoTL et non-SoTL. L'information recueillie dans le cadre de ce sondage a servi à créer une «carte» complète des activités SoTL à travers le Canada.
