Program Overview

The ARCC SoTL Scholars Program is a two-year program that brings together faculty from across disciplines and experience to participate in a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) faculty learning community. Scholars will be supported as they develop and implement a SoTL study using a lens of equity, and present SoTL results at a conference or in a journal.  SoTL studies will focus on pedagogical practices that enhance the teaching and student experience. Participants will meet for a fall retreat and then monthly during the academic year to progress their SoTL work and collaborate. 

ARCC faculty who are interested in improving the teaching and student learning experience. Individual faculty members and teams (2-3 faculty who complete a shared project) are eligible.  

Each Scholar will receive a $500 stipend each semester of the program ($2000 total).  Participants must attend scheduled meetings and meet project benchmarks to be eligible for the stipend. Individual meeting arrangements may be made in the event of extenuating circumstances. Scholars receive support to attend a teaching and learning conference each year of the program.
