SoTL Poster Award

Presented on behalf of SoTL Canada

The SoTL Poster Award was established in 2008 to encourage innovative and effective poster presentations during the STLHE annual conference.

The SoTL Poster Award promotes the importance of posters as opportunities to disseminate SoTL research results in an interactive way and to explore creative, effective and innovative teaching and learning practices. Articles based on posters will be eligible for submission to the annual journal Collected Essays on Learning and Teaching (CELT), a publication drawing largely from the work of Conference presenters (also including workshops, concurrent sessions, and roundtables).

The current SoTL Poster Award coordinator is Melanie Hamilton from Lethbridge College.
