Scholarship of Learning & Teaching

The Scholarship of Learning and Teaching (SoLT) Community of Practice 

SoLT Community of Practice (CoP) meetings are held roughly every 6 weeks and are open to academics with all levels of experience in SoLT publishing.

A ‘guest of honour’ with considerable experience in SoLT publishing is invited to each meeting to share their experience and offer advice. There is also time allocated for people to share their SoLT project ideas and receive feedback from the group.

If you would like to join the CoP, please email Belinda Thompson (

Write your journal article in 12 weeks

The objective of this program is for you to have a journal paper ready for submission at the end of the 12 weeks.  During that time, you will receive individual assistance and feedback on your drafts from our facilitator, as well as participate in peer review with other participants.

Dates for 2021 are being confirmed. If you would like to take part in the program or would like further information, please email Belinda Thompson (
