Theoretical and Methodological Issues in SoTL

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.
