The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

The Canadian Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (CJSoTL) is the official, trans-disciplinary, peer-reviewed, electronic publication of the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education.

CJSoTL/RCACEA seeks to advance the scholarship of teaching and learning in Canadian post-secondary institutions. It therefore provides an avenue for a wide range of educators, including faculty members, administrators, academic librarians, educational developers, learning resource specialists, and graduate students, to discuss ways of enhancing student learning experiences through systematic inquiry into teaching and learning in all disciplines.

We invite submissions, in either English or French, from anyone, including international colleagues, interested in discussing teaching and learning issues that are relevant to different types of institutions in the Canadian context. Published articles can be found on the journal’s website.

Volume 10 Issue 2 continues to exemplify this significant contribution to the SoTL literature with the following articles.
