The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is an international movement to study teaching and learning in order to improve student learning. As the movement continues to grow, librarians have much to offer and learn from SoTL. The workshop facilitators will discuss the components that contribute to a successful SoTL project, and highlight examples of successful librarian SoTL projects. Using the ACRL Framework for Information Literacy for Higher Education as a guiding document, attendees will identify areas of curiosity in teaching and learning and connect these ideas with potential SoTL research projects in their teaching. Attendees will leave the workshop with a plan for conducting their own SoTL research, as well as identifying potential SoTL collaborators at their own institution. This workshop is sponsored by the ACRL Student Learning and Information Literacy Committee.
