Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

We have an active and vibrant community of Higher Education researchers at La Trobe. Many of you are engaged in researching aspects of your teaching, curriculum and student learning, using those outcomes to support curriculum design and innovation.

Our Programs

SOTL Seminars - Learning in the Digital Age

Be supported in your learning and teaching practice by hearing from award winning colleagues who have been involved in a variety of initiatives offered by La Trobe Learning and Teaching (LTLT)

Since 2009, LTLT has coordinated the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) research network. The network provides staff at La Trobe with the opportunities to obtain feedback in order to advance and publish their SOTL projects and inquiries.

The SOTL network coordinates a regular seminar program each semester, host workshops and events from visiting academics on aspects of higher education teaching and learning scholarship. The series of seminars, called Learning in the Digital Age, showcases a range of teaching practices that are responses to this broad challenge through the lens of academics at La Trobe whose practice has been recognised at the institutional and national levels by awards and grants.
