Indiana University Press will publish Teaching and Learning Inquiry, the official publication of the International Society of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL). Published twice a year beginning in March 2013, it will include insightful research, theory, commentary, and other scholarly works that document or facilitate investigations of teaching and learning in higher education. TLI values quality and variety in its vision of the scholarship of teaching and learning.
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a growing movement in post-secondary education. SoTL is scholarly inquiry into student learning that advances the practice of teaching by making research findings public. ISSOTL has cultivated a strong international and interdisciplinary community, primarily through the quality of its annual conferences.
TLI’s Editorial Board features representation from ISSOTL's international regions (US, Canada, Australasia, and Europe), the entire career spectrum (from student to retiree, and all between), a breadth of disciplines and professions, a variety of institutional types, and women and men. TLI promises to offer the best and most groundbreaking work on and in the scholarship of teaching and learning.
TLI editors, Nancy Chick (Vanderbilt University—Center for Teaching) and Gary Poole (University of British Columbia—School of Population and Public Health), bring strong, complementary SoTL backgrounds to the journal that with Nancy's experience in the humanities (literary studies) and Gary's experience in the social sciences (psychology).
TLI will strive to push boundaries and expand the field by introducing a wider range of genres and perspectives. TLI editor Nancy Chick says, “We plan to do this without compromising well-established criteria that would be expected across the disciplines. We will be creative, thoughtful, artistic, and scientific. This sounds ambitious, but it is just what SoTL needs within the covers of one leading journal.”
In addition, TLI invites nontraditional genres of SoTL publication. Along with essays, projects will also be represented in poems, dialogues, and other creative products.
The journal will regularly feature articles documenting SoTL projects, theoretical assertions, literature syntheses, or reports on the field; dialogues responding to previous issues; innovative but systematic reflections through creative products; and reviews of books, external articles, web resources, or conferences.
