Scholarship of Learning and Teaching

The Scholarship of Learning and Teaching (SoLT) for Curtin is publicly shared, systematic enquiry in learning, teaching and the broader higher education context. The subject of inquiry may include innovation in teaching and learning contexts, practices, processes, curricula, policies and/or resources.

Applicants for promotion at Curtin will find information here and should note that they are expected to be engaged in scholarship in teaching and learning and to demonstrate evidence of peer review eg publications, competitive grants and awards.

Teachers engaging in scholarship in learning and teaching seek to improve teaching at the tertiary level by:

  • Consulting and applying the literature on teaching and learning
  • Investigating their own teaching
  • Adopting innovative teaching approaches
  • Formally communicating their ideas and practice to peers through publication and other formal means; and
  • Seeking and obtaining peer recognition for their ideas and practice.
