Indiana University's Scholarship of Teaching and Learning initiative fosters collaborative efforts that help move teaching beyond a solitary, and quite often private, act. By embracing the idea that many of today's teaching challenges are in fact opportunities for faculty to collaborate on investigative research projects, IU's various Communities of Inquiry have become a mainstay of the program.
Funded SOTL Research: Indiana University's Communities of Inquiry
- More Information
Each Community of Inquiry is a faculty-defined and implemented collaborative project contributing to the larger interdisciplinary conversation that has become one of the hallmarks of the SOTL program. Supported by the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, each community concentrates on a particular research topic, teaching problem, or theoretical model, as they generate, critique, and disseminate in-depth and comparative scholarship that examines relationships between learning and teaching, within and across disciplines.
