‌SoTL Journal Club

The SoTL Journal Club is designed to engage colleagues with key and emerging evidence-based and philosophically influential pedagogical literature.

The Journal Club is held regularly and focuses on a close reading of selected published research / scholarship into learning and teaching which is discussed and critiqued. The aim is to both evaluate the robustness of the research itself and the methodology chosen, and to consider its relevance for our own teaching practice. Attendees comprise a mix of academic, teaching and professional support staff with a shared interest in developing an informed awareness of the evidence base for good educational practice.
