EuroSoTL 2017

– Transforming patterns through the scholarship of teaching and learning

Human behavior, thinking, and interaction have a tendency to become institutionalised in traditions, recurrent practices, and routines. This tendency may save energy, appear efficient and predictive but it also risks limiting learning and personal development.

The conference will address the general theme in a variety of formats – papers, workshops, symposia, roundtables, and posters. We welcome submissions of emerging, ongoing, and finalised inquiries on how SoTL contributes to transformed patterns of learning and behavior in and between
