SoTL Foundations Badge

SoTL Foundations Program for Postdoctoral Scholars

The SoTL Foundations Development Program for Graduate Students invites students to join discussion-based sessions focused on brief foundational SoTL readings, participate in their choice of workshops and draft a preliminary SoTL plan. Students in this program will learn about scholarly, evidence-based approaches to student learning and teaching, and will have the opportunity to reflect and build upon their own teaching and learning practices. 

This badge is part of the Postdoctoral Scholar Certificates in University Teaching and Learning program.
