Submission deadline: Thursday, March 31, 2022

Conference Theme
For many, the goal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is the exploration and transformation of the teaching and learning environment for both students and faculty, whether at the level of an individual class or the whole institution across all disciplines. There is little doubt that the impact of SoTL can be profound, yet the slow pace of change in higher education teaching, learning, and curriculum practices is a challenge felt universally around the world. This conference will invite research presentations, posters, and workshops at the intersections of the scholarship on teaching and learning in higher education that represent our diverse and inclusive cultures, perspectives, knowledges, disciplines, methodologies, partners, and levels of focus, and will explore the impact of our scholarship on advancing change across different teaching and learning contexts and communities.

The theme of this conference is “At the Intersections of SoTL: Transfer and Transformation, Diversity and Inclusion.” Given this theme, we invite scholars to share work related but not restricted to the following:
• The impact of SoTL on transforming teaching and curricular practices, and student learning
• Using diverse (cultural, disciplinary) ways of knowing to shape our SoTL approaches and practices
• The way linguistic and epistemic justice inform scholarly communication and inquiry
• The inclusion of campus (including student, staff and faculty) and community partners within SoTL projects
• Furthering our understanding of teaching and learning at the course, program, institutional, or cross-institutional levels
From the challenges of creating inclusive learning environments for all students to be successful within our increasingly diverse global higher education landscape, to the challenges faced in transferring evidence-based practices informed by SoTL across varied institutional, national, and disciplinary contexts, the ISSOTL 2022 Conference will provide a dynamic space for ongoing debate and dialogue about the future of teaching, learning, and SoTL in higher education.
