Sparking the Magic of SoTL at Mount Royal University
Keywords:SoTL Development, paradigm shift, history of SoTL, faculty development
In this invited article, we reflect on how SoTL came to be, at least within one institution, Mount Royal University (MRU). We caught up with Dr. Jim Zimmer, Associate Professor in General Education and past- Associate Vice-President of Teaching and Learning to discuss the early days of SoTL at MRU, and his perspectives and role in laying the foundations for SoTL at MRU. We also discuss how Jim has seen SoTL evolve over the last 10-15 years and some of the key catalysts that, in his view, formalized SoTL as an integral part of MRU.
