Scholarship of Technology Enhanced Learning

What is SOTEL? Since Ernest Boyer’s seminal 1990 report, Scholarship Reconsidered: Priorities of the Professoriate, there has been a wealth of literature on what is termed the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL). Another field of inquiry that has been rapidly developing in the last couple of decades is Technology Enhanced Learning (TEL). There are dozens of high quality peer-reviewed academic journals publishing TEL research, but there is a lack of literature examining how TEL might overlap, and be informed by, the theoretical and practical frameworks within SoTL. The Scholarship of Technology Enhanced Learning (SoTEL) is a new sub-branch of Boyer’s model of scholarship (scholarship of discovery, scholarship of integration, scholarship of application, and scholarship of teaching and learning) which seeks to create dialogue between the findings of educational research and actual teaching in technology-enhanced learning contexts.
