SoTL Grant Submission Deadline Extended

Posted on Monday, March 23rd, 2020


The Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) and the Associate Vice-President (Academic) invite

full-time faculty, staff and academic librarians to apply to the

 2020 Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Grant.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) outlines the processes that we engage in when “asking and answering questions about students’ learning in ways that can improve one’s own classroom and also advance the larger profession of teaching”.    (Huber and Hutchings, 2005, p.1)

The goal of the SoTL grant is to provide financial support for a research project that aims to improve our understanding of student learning and the practice of teaching by:

  • Conducting a scholarly examination into a meaningful question about student learning and associated teaching activities
  • Gathering and analyzing evidence on factors that affect the teaching - learning experience
  • Disseminating the findings publicly for peer-reviewed bodies of knowledge (disciplinary and non-disciplinary)

The SoTL grant is intended to encourage and support inquiry related to teaching and learning at the University of Guelph, whereas the Learning Enhancement Fund (LEF), focuses on the application of innovative strategies in teaching and learning.

New this year

Submissions must use the downloadable proposal and budget templates available on our SoTL webpage.

Please submit your signed, completed proposal and budget templates electronically, to

no later than 4:00pm April 17th, 2020.
