Diana Sturges

Boyer (1990) redefined scholarship by introducing the concept of Scholarship of Teaching and elevating the traditional role of teaching from "a routine function" to an essential component of scholarly life in higher education. In this session, the presenter, a University System of Georgia Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Award winner, will provide participants interested in research on teaching a brief overview of SoTL, discuss the value and need for SoTL from a personal perspective (Sturges, 2012), as well as an imperative in higher education for student learning (Trigwell, 2013), institutional effectiveness (Bernstein, 2013) and faculty development (Fanghanel, 2013). The session will conclude with a discussion on how SoTL both informs and dovetails with teaching and attendees' reasons to be engaged in SoTL.
