Scholarship of Teaching & Learning - funding opportunities

April 15, 2024

We are pleased to announce the launch of two funding opportunities, in support of Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL). SoTL is increasingly important within post-secondary education. By using systematic, deliberate and methodological inquiry into teaching, we can make a measurable improvement in student learning.

Below are details of the opportunities:

SoTL Linkage Grants

SoTL Linkage Grants were established to enable the synthesis, exploration and high-impact dissemination of interdisciplinary SoTL research. This program supports the formation of interdisciplinary teams of SoTL researchers inquiring into fundamental questions in higher education that benefit from investigation in multiple pedagogical and/or curricular contexts.

UBC has committed a total $100k fund amount this year, with up to $25k awarded to each successful proposal. Notices of Intent will need to be submitted by May 29, 2024.

SoTL Seed Program

The SoTL Seed Program provides those interested in exploring the impact of their pedagogical choices with graduate research specialists, collegial collaborations, and limited funding.

All UBC faculty and staff are invited to apply. Priority is given to full-time faculty members, those who teach at the undergraduate level, and those who have not had an active SoTL Seed project in the last 12 months. The deadline for applications is May 27, 2024.
