Video & and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
According to Kathleen McKinney (in her 2007 book, Enhancing Learning Through the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: The Challenges and Joys of Juggling), SoTL refers to "the systematic reflection or study of teaching and learning made public." One key dimension of this reflection is turning a scientific lens inward on our teaching practices to continuously improve our teaching and student learning. Therefore, given the focus of this website, we have been collecting relevant SoTL articles addressing video use in classroom instruction. We hope that instructors not only find these articles helpful in their own classes but they inspire further contributions to the field.
