Abstract

Although the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is now a widely used term within higher education, there has been criticism that the dominant view of SoTL is drawn from research-intensive universities and is therefore not as relevant to college-based higher education (CBHE) staff “whose focus is primarily on teaching and learning and who have [a] high number of taught contact hours” (King and Widdowson 2009).

This paper focuses on the development of two complementary frameworks to promote SoTL in CBHE, particularly as a means of supporting teaching quality and effectiveness. The first is that developed by Hull College to encourage engagement in SoTL amongst its higher education teaching staff. The second is the Open University Partner Scholarship Network, of which Hull College is a member, which seeks to provide resources for SoTL for its validated institutions, many of which are college-based.
