ISSOTL Interest Groups

Interest Groups are organized around shared interests such as discipline, a pedagogy under study, nationality, region of residence, educational status, and institutional type. The Society particularly encourages Interest Groups with international membership and non-traditional groupings based on research interests.  Interest Groups must maintain a minimum of ten ISSOTL members in good standing.

Interest Groups offer their members the opportunity to exchange information and ideas on specific topics related to scholarship of teaching and learning. Interest Groups may propose symposia, forums, workshops, or special events for the annual conference through the standard review process.

Officially recognized Interest Groups will be provided space to hold a meeting of their group on Friday, October 4, after the Concurrent Sessions.  Please send an e-mail to issotl13@elon.edu by August 1, 2013, with your request to reserve space if your Interest Group would like to have a meeting.

Current Interest Groups are:

  • Advancing Undergraduate Research
  • The Arts and Humanities
  • General Education
  • National Teaching Fellows and Institutional Teaching Award Winners
  • Problem Based Learning
  • Scholarship of Leading
  • Sociology
  • Students as Co-Inquirers
