What is the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning?

"The scholarship of teaching and learning involves systematic study of teaching and/or learning and the public sharing and review of such work through presentations, performances, or publications. Presentations, performances, and publications may be local, regional, national or international.  SoTL, then, shares established criteria of scholarship in general, such as that it is made public, can be reviewed critically by members of the appropriate community, and can be built upon by others to advance the field.   SoTL focuses on teaching and learning at the college level, and is primarily classroom and disciplinary based. Ideally, SoTL also involves application and use." from "What is the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning"  http://sotl.illinoisstate.edu/downloads/chairDeanHandout.pdf
