Writing About Your Evidence

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.

Commonalities exist across disciplines though, like writing about what is different about your research and what new contributions you are making to the literature.
