Writing & Publishing a SoTL Project

Writing

Six Standards of Scholarly Work
Assessment questions and issues that your write-up of your study should address.

Writing About Your Evidence

Publication

One of the main reasons for doing SoTL research is to publish and/or share the results with other educators and researchers; to make your work public. Every discipline or field has their own standards of writing and scholarship, but SoTL is an interdisciplinary field and therefore individual journals and conferences can differ on format and other expectations.
