Student Presence at ISSOTL - at the Conference and on the Board

Dear Colleagues,

It’s fall, and emails about the upcoming ISSOTL conference in Bergen are starting to arrive in my inbox, kind diversions from the dissertation and the job search.  Serving on the Board for four years and working alongside some amazing people, particularly the Student Representatives with whom I served, Roselynn Verwoord and Sam Lucie Dvorakova, I realized how much goes into the student presence at ISSOTL. I’m writing to invite you to consider how you can contribute to that student presence, particularly as you prepare for this year’s conference.

SoTL Trade Winds: Technical Trades & SoTL

by Nicola Simmons, Brock University

Earlier this year I wrote to our listserv seeking literature pertaining to SoTL and trades education. I was hoping for peer-reviewed articles I could include as readings in a SoTL course aimed at community college faculty, and I was having very limited success in finding anything in the area (read that as: more or less none!). I wanted to share my findings in a blog to let others know what I and colleagues did find.

Call for co-leaders for International Collaborative Writing Group (ICWG) 2019

ISSOTL invites applications from two ISSOTL members to co-lead the next ICWG to be hosted immediately preceding ISSOTL 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.  As intentional, international collaborations that bring together ISSOTL members of all ranks and regions in focused inquiry, the ICWGs embody both the spirit and the work of ISSOTL. This is an exciting leadership opportunity for ISSOTL members who are passionate about collaborative SoTL, experienced in publishing, dedicated to supporting colleagues in writing, and committed to working in international partnership.

SOTL in the South and a Tribute to Brenda Leibowitz

The second issue of SOTL in the South was published at the end of April. SOTL in the South "is an online open source and peer-reviewed journal dedicated to fostering dialogue and research on teaching and learning in higher education in the global South, or about the global South."

May 2018 Update from the Publications Advisory Committee

The Publications Advisory Committee (PAC) is responsible for guiding and supporting ISSOTL’s scholarly journal, Teaching & Learning Inquiry (TLI). While the co-editors and editorial board make decisions about TLI’s content and focus, the PAC addresses issues of financial health and sustainability, and ensures that the journal effectively supports the mission of the organization.
