Critical Transitions in Teaching and Learning


The 10th annual conference of the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning was held in Raleigh, North Carolina, on October 2 – 5, 2013, hosted by Elon University’s Center for Engaged Learning.

In higher education around the world, inquiry into student learning is moving from isolated practice to systematic research, from peripheral projects to institutional integration, from the margins of disciplines and campuses toward a central position in the academy. This conference focused on these and other transitions in scholarly teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning.

At the conference, attendees had the opportunity to explore both individual inquiry projects and also broader questions about the scholarship and practice of teaching and learning in higher education.
