International SOTL journal

A note to draw people's attention to what looks like a very nice scholarly journal on teaching, the International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. They've published but two issues so far, and it happens to be free and online. Here are some titles of papers to whet your appetite:


  1. Michael,

    Thanks for the heads-up. I'll add this journal to my list.

    However, the links don't seem to be working. Can you take a look?

  2. Chris (and others):

    Odd thing with the links: If you click them you get a 403. But if you then just copy the URL text into a new tab or window, it shows up fine. ?

    If you go back into editing the post and switch it into html mode I'll bet that the actual link is slightly different to the url shown. I've found blogger does this sometimes for no apparent reason.


  4. Thanks for the link. Would you fellows consider posting a list of "best of" journals and books? There's so much stuff out there on educational approaches and it's tough to determine what is useful and what is not.

    I'm curious, too, on the "meta" side of things, how your epistemology informs your teaching. I was recommended Bruffee, who takes Rorty and anti-foundationalist theories of knowledge very seriously, to the extent that he says knowledge is only community consensus (at least as I read him). As much as I think collaborative approaches to teaching works in helping students understand philosophy, I am hesitant because I don't want to go down that particular epistemological path...

    (I'm a philosophy adjunct with an MA and in the process of applying to PhD programs)

  5. David - Thanks for the recommendation on the links, but all the URL's match up. ??
