More about this event:
Scholarship of Teaching
and Learning is at the cutting edge of academic research and was developed as a
way of exploring teaching modalities and student learning. This year’s theme, “Storytelling,”
will focus on the role of stories for teaching.
During this three-day
event, participants will investigate how stories convey meanings and enhance
abstract concepts, how courses tell a story and can be constructed like a
story, how stories can be used for research purposes, and much more.
The goal of the
institute is to support SoTL scholars at all levels of experience through
mentoring so that they examine in a systematic way the effectiveness of their

The International Institute for SoTL Scholars and Mentors is a consortium of
scholars from Canisius College, Columbia College Chicago, Creighton University,
Loyola Marymount University, Truman State University, and University of
