Regents’ Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Awards

The USG Office of Academic Affairs invites nominations for Regents’ Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) Awards. Initiated by Boyer’s Scholarship Reconsidered (1990), and exemplified by the Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, the scholarship of teaching and learning encourages and supports the work of faculty members whose scholarship focuses on the instructional mission of the institution. Two faculty/staff awards will be given; sector will not be a consideration for these awards. We hope that the award will continue to foster and encourage the scholarship of teaching and learning at USG institutions.
