More About This Event

In January, the inaugural SoTL Vision event at UEL sought to decode Felten’s (2013) Five Pillars of the Scholarship of Learning and Teaching from the specific perspective of our institution and its strategic vision to meet the needs of its unique student population in the most impactful way possible.

Building on this, Crossing Borders will explore the intricacies of our practices in order to survey the landscape for establishing a sustainable culture of collaborative student-centred teaching and learning, as well as establishing a common space for ongoing scholarly outputs. Drawing directly on student and teacher experiences, and seeking to connect existing communities of practice, this event will unpack the following themes, which connect directly with international SoTL debates:

• A culture for learning: How do we generate and sustain meaningful teaching and learning that have a lasting impact, within and across courses, programs, departments and institutions?
• A culture of learners: How do we engage and support the many players and complex relationships that together comprise a learning environment?
• An inclusive learning culture: What happens when we connect student learning to life and work experiences beyond the (physical or virtual) classroom? What does teaching and learning look like, and what does SOTL look like, when inclusivity (of diverse perspectives as well as a diversity of people) is not an add-on but core to our practices?
• A culture that learns: How is SOTL changing, and how can SOTL practice foster development and growth in higher education?

We seek to identify the individual, interdisciplinary, institutional and international means by which learners and teachers can work together to create a culture of collaboration.

About The Organisers

• We are a cross-disciplinary community of HE practitioners who share a common interest in achieving better teaching and learning experiences through impactful student-centred scholarship. We want to foster and promote a sustained culture of co-creation in teaching and learning that starts with students’ needs and ends with institutional transformation.
• We call ourselves CIRCLE (the Community for Impactful Research into Connected Learning Experiences).

What We Do

•Use our research to demonstrate tangible evidence of student-centred best practices in our institution (TEF).
• Collaborate with students (TEF).
• Establish new, and connect existing international communities of practice via a collaborative writing group (TEF/REF).
• Commercialise knowledge exchange (KEF).
• Disseminate findings through a scholarly book series (REF).
• Publish impactful scholarly outputs of our own (TEF/REF).
• Intervene with scholarly debates in teaching and learning via a peer-assessed journal (TEF/REF).
• Design and deliver conferences (KEF/TEF).
• Influence national and international policy and practices in teaching and learning (TEF).
• Use The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) as a vehicle to connect and align TEF, REF and KEF.
