Thompson Rivers University (TRU) is mandated to provide British Columbia’s Open Learning programming, as well as offering face-to-face courses in everything from trades to traditional academics. Our comprehensiveness can result in both creative linkages and communication gaps.

Our project aims to foster those linkages (and thereby bridge gaps) by engaging the TRU community in creating a resource on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. Although a relatively new field of research at the post-secondary level, the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) has rapidly become very popular; for example, over a dozen learned journals in Canada are devoted to dissemination of SoTL in higher education. What better way to connect members of a teaching community than through their shared interests in, and writing about, processes of teaching and learning?

We will describe the process we undertook to develop an inventory and resource of SoTL and SoTL-related articles authored by members of our university community. An electronic account of publications that can be easily updated, a component of a proposed institutional repository, and a source of information and inspiration for scholars new to writing articles about teaching and learning, our annotated bibliography can also promote teaching and research intersections.


Participants in this session will come away with:

  1. A rationale for the development of a SoTL bibliography/inventory;
  2. Knowledge of the process in establishing a successful inventory;
  3. A beginner’s “tool kit” with which to undertake such a project at their own institution.
