SoTL Residency

Supported by the Teaching-Learning Academy and the Western Libraries, the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) Residency is held at the North Cascades Learning Institute near Diablo Lake during the second week of September. This event provides a dedicated time and place for faculty, staff, and students to further develop a community of teaching and learning at Western.


Residency Goals:

  1. To develop and strengthen a community of teaching and learning scholars at WWU.
  2. To provide teaching-learning scholars with a comfortable, collaborative space, lodging, meals, and opportunities for peer review, and SoTL resources.
  3. To advance individual and collaborative SoTL inquiry projects.


The only expectations for this Residency is that participants commit to attending for the entire time and agree to share their results in some form with the WWU community in the coming academic year.
