scholarlyTeaching is scholarly work that relies on various research methodologies.

What is the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)?

In short, it is the study of the effectiveness of a particular teaching practice.  SoTL is usually conducted by a faculty member specific to a course he or she teaches.  SoTL employs research methods similar to those used in other disciplines including reflection, evidence-based methods, peer review, and publicly disseminated findings. These slides  show some of the SoTL studies by ERAU faculty in 2014-2015.
