Special Issue: CJSoTL

We are delighted to announce the publication of SoTL within Canadian Contexts & Communities: The Collaborative Writing Groups Initiative a special issue of CJSoTL.

The special issue, guest edited by Nicola Simmons along with CJSoTL Senior Editor Elizabeth Marquis, contains work generated through a unique collaborative writing initiative facilitated by the SoTL Canada constituency of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education. Through this initiative, teams of scholars from across Canada came together to co-author articles on teaching and learning topics of shared interest, including the development of SoTL in various institutional contexts and the question of who does (or does not) engage in SoTL work.

SoTL within Canadian Contexts & Communities: The Collaborative Writing Groups Initiative makes a significant contribution to the SoTL literature with the following articles.
