N E W S L E T T E R - January 2016

TLI now available to all


Teaching & Learning Inquiry (TLI)—the journal of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL)—is now available online and open access at

On January 1, all issues of TLI went online under a CC-BY license, which permits unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of its materials as long as the original work is properly attributed. From now on, TLI will provide free, instant, and permanent access to all materials it publishes and has published to date.

This move makes the research and ideas published in the journal more readily available to an ever-expanding SoTL community, facilitating increased sharing, readership, and citation of TLI's authors. At the same time, TLI will continue to provide thorough and rigorous reviews, as well as careful editorial attention to submissions.

Visit to read all articles, submit manuscripts, and sign up for alerts of new content. Questions may be sent to

Happy 2016— 

Nancy Chick & Gary Poole, Teaching & Learning Inquiry co-editors

Advocacy and Outreach

The ISSoTL Advocacy and Outreach Committee has created a section of the ISSOTL website to provide scholars with the tools they need to promote the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning to campus administrators, fellow scholars, and members of the general public. The pages include strategies and resources for facilitating discussions about SoTL on campus and a media kit with advice on how to research, approach, and write for mainstream publications. It is our hope that faculty members new to SoTL and those who are already involved in SoTL advocacy and outreach efforts will find these resources useful.

Check back often for updates!
