Invitation email by the co-chairs to ISSOTL Scholarship of Leading Special Interest Group (SIG) members:
Dear ISSOTL Members,
The Scholarship of Leading (SoL) is an Interest Group within the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSOTL). Committed to pursuing scholarly work on the relationships between leading, teaching and learning, this interest group’s mission is to create opportunities for dialogue, to promote scholarly research on the topic, and to provide support to ISSoTL members interested in and engaged in leadership.
As co-chairs of SoL since 2017, we surveyed our members regarding their interests in and perceptions of the SoL and presented the findings at our SoL Annual Meeting in Calgary, Canada, 2017. The survey helped illuminate the many ways that SoL is defined, including through formal roles, structures and activities, as well as through other less formalized activities that provide leadership for the improvement of postsecondary education and one’s own growth. Based on discussion with SoL members at this year’s ISSOTL Annual Meeting in Bergen, Norway, we are putting out this call for proposals regarding what SoL in education looks like in practice – in other words, how are you or others you are working with leading or influencing others in teaching or education? What models of leadership are influencing your work or what models are you generating?
Please see the following link for a submission template, 2 examples of mini-case studies, and further information regarding the call for proposals.
