The International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning invites you to join its 17th annual conference. This year's conference theme is 'Sustainable Education through SoTL: Practices and Cultures'. The ISSOTL 2020 Conference will be a forum to examine the role SoTL can play in ensuring that the practices and cultures we value at our universities and beyond, are sustained into the future.

International scholars and educators will come together to share recent work and to discuss how the collective efforts can ensure that the practices and cultures that they value at their universities, and in wider society, can be sustained into the future. The conference will feature pre-conference workshops facilitated by leading scholars in the field, distinguished international and local plenary speakers, panel discussions, individual paper and poster presentations, concurrent workshops, and ISSOTL’s signature Conference Commons for informal idea-sharing and networking. In addition, ISSOTL are continuing the tradition of International Collaborative Writing Groups immediately before the conference, October 25-26.

ISSOTL serves faculty members, staff, and students who care about teaching and learning as serious intellectual work. The conferences convene participants from across the disciplines and around the world as a community that fosters inquiry and disseminates findings about what improves and articulates postsecondary learning and teaching.

The committee welcomes proposals which address the sustainability theme across any of its aspects as they relate to higher education. They offer the following broad categories to help frame where your scholarship may fit with the overarching theme. Please specify one of the categories below when you submit your proposal:

  • SoTL Leadership and Advocacy
  • Justice and Equity through SoTL
  • Academic Development and SoTL
  • First Year Experience and Transition/ Student Retention within SoTL
  • Students as Partners
  • Graduate Employability
  • Technology Enhanced Learning and SoTL
