A Look of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Statistics in Canada since 2000

Since Boyer (1990) argued that the view of scholarship should be broadened to include ‘Scholarship of Teaching’, scholarly work related to teaching and learning in higher education has grown substantially. SoTL not only brings inquiry into our classrooms to improve teaching practices and student outcomes, but it can also serve as a recognized area of scholarship for promotion purposes. In 2006, Maryellen Weimer conducted an extensive literature review on Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) work, classifying and critiquing SoTL papers to lean how this type of work could be improved. In this talk, I will describe Weimer’s SoTL categories, share results of a review of peer-reviewed Statistics SoTL papers authored by people at Canadian post-secondary institutions and explore how this work has been changing over time. Then, I will share recommendations based on Weimer's and others' research for anyone who is interested in using, assessing, or conducting SoTL in Statistics.
