West Chester University's Third Annual Scholarship of Teaching, Learning, and Assessment (SoTLA) conference, hosted by the Academic Affairs Division, is focused on enhancing faculty members' scholarship related to assessment, classroom engagement, and online technology within the higher education community.  Organized by the Teaching, Learning, and Assessment Center and IS&T Distance Education Services, the conference promotes the dissemination of research into our craft of teaching in higher education, demonstrating ways in which our scholarship and instruction can inform one another and center on the needs and goals of our students. 

Proposal notifications will be sent by Friday, November 16, 2018.
