Hutchings, Huber, and Ciccone (2011) suggested four areas of institutional impact of SoTL
1. Improving Teaching and Student Learning
2. Professional Growth and Faculty Development
4. Valuing and Evaluating Teaching
It can be challenging for faculty with limited knowledge of the science of teaching and learning to situate their SoTL studies within a theoretical framework. Fortunately, there are several resources on the science of teaching and learning written for those outside of the discipline. Here are some places to start:
Ambrose, S. A., Bridges, M. W., DiPietro, M., Lovett, M. C., & Norman, M. K. (2010). How learning works: 7 research-based principles for smart teaching (1st ed.). San Francisco, CA: Jossey-Bass.Area of Focus: Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Tag: Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
