This international conference seeks to build capacities in scholarly teaching and supports research around learning in higher education within the field of the humanities. Standing at the intersection of disciplinary knowledge and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), this conference makes the case for the classroom experience as a rich site of knowledge production and, in doing so, challenges the typical disciplinary division of “real” research from its less-valued cousin, “just” teaching.
How can we understand classrooms as generative spaces brimming with fresh insights into the cultural, historical, and critical importance of the humanities? We believe that this is a crucial question in the fraught global climate of the 21st century, and higher education is one key space where we help foster and support future global citizens.
In exploring both the delight and the rich sites of research in teaching, this conference advocates for a pedagogical-scholarly practice grounded in and motivated by our experiences in forging intentionally designed, ethical, and curiosity-driven classrooms.
