The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is an area of inquiry ripe for librarian involvement that provides opportunities to engage with deeper questions around pedagogy and student learning. This online discussion will provide a brief overview of SoTL and discuss how library instruction program coordinators can use SoTL as a foundation for building and invigorating a culture of teaching and learning within their libraries. The presenters will discuss how instruction coordinators and directors can use SoTL as a way to foster creativity and engage librarians in exploration of their own teaching. We will discuss the challenges and benefits of moving from individual SOTL projects to a SOTL- infused teaching and learning culture, and what can enable this transformation. We will offer strategies to support library leaders in making connections between SoTL projects and promoting pedagogical innovation within a library instruction program.
