The ULRF SoTL stream is open to all members of the academic staff faculty, including instructors and academic assistants who hold continuing appointments. Applicants may only be named on one ULRF SoTL application per competition. Applicants are permitted, however, to hold a University of Lethbridge Travel Fund award concurrently with the ULRF SoTL Fund.
There are three main objectives of SoTL:
- To improve student learning by finding better, more engaging ways to teach.
- To conduct scholarly examination of what takes place inside the classroom, asking questions and collecting evidence on the effectiveness of different methods of teaching.
- To make the results of this analysis readily available to other scholars, inviting their comment and review, and contributing to knowledge on student learning.
This fund is focused specifically on teaching and learning at the post-secondary level at the University of Lethbridge.
Awards to a single applicant are limited up to a maximum of $6,000.
