ISSOTL 13 - Raleigh, North Carolina

The International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning conference will be in Raleigh, North Carolina, on October 2 – 5, 2013, hosted by Elon University’s Center for Engaged Learning.

In higher education around the world, inquiry into student learning is moving from isolated practice to systematic research, from peripheral projects to institutional integration, from the margins of disciplines and campuses toward a central position in the academy. This conference will focus on these and other transitions in scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning.
