International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL)
The conference theme, Leading Learning and the Scholarship of Change
, will explore how teaching staff and students in universities can lead quality learning and teaching practice as we move inevitably towards more changes in higher education.
Themes and sub-themes:
1. Leadership in the academy: formal, informal, distributed, shared, collaborative, integrative, student-led
Leadership in the academy takes many forms and requires different skills.
2. Future students, future pedagogies, future learning paradigms
We are experiencing a period of change and disruption to higher education on a scale not previously experienced.
3. Diversity in the academy: teachers, students, practice, context
Diversity in the academy is critical for students, teachers and institutions if they are to learn and flourish.
4. Engagement: leading inside and outside the academy
Engagement in local and global communities and with workplaces is more important than ever for higher education.
5. From local scholarship to changing practice
SoTL has often been a personal or localised activity.
6. Leading SoTL in the Disciplines and/or across the institution
SoTL can thrive with the support of experienced and/or enthusiastic practitioners, scholars and others in formal or informal leadership roles.
