This podcast is all about the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. From reading out loud your ideas and publications, to chats and interviews with colleagues from the across the sector. If there is anything in particular you are interested in let me know in Twitter with the #SoTLcast hashtag.
Meet our Colleagues from the Adam Smith Business School Dr Helen Mullen, Dr Nick Quinn, and Dr Matt Offord sharing their experience moving into lecturer roles with learning, teaching, and scholarship focus after having successful careers in the private sector. Hear about the trials and tribulations adjusting to academic life and becoming involved in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. And in fact what makes the involvement with SoTL so attractive as part of the career in higher education.
Today I have the pleasure to speak to Sam Oakley who works for the research integrity office about how RI features in Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and we may or may not make reference to a Disney movie.
In this episode I have the absolute pleasure to speak with Prof Susan Jamieson about becoming a professor on a Learning, Teaching and Scholarship track, which is a teaching (rather than research) focussed academic career path. It usually involves the engagement in a variety of SoTL activities. The academic community under #LTHEchat and #AcademicChatter as well as colleagues from our institution submitted questions I should ask Susan. We had an A4 sheet full of questions so today's episode is a bit longer than usual!
This is the paper Susan mentions during the interview: http://eprints.gla.ac.uk/59552/

In this episode Paul Cannon who is one of our college librarians is talking about all the things the librarians can support when it comes to undertaking SoTL, but there are also some tips on searches, databases and publication. Tune in for more. And if you want to read up on some of the items we spoke about hop over to Paul's blog post on our SoTL blog.
In this episode Dr Vicki Dale is giving us tips about how to design questionnaires for SoTL projects. We talk question design, when to use or not to use a questionnaire, and what to do about demographic data.
Correction: Vicki referred to measures of central displacement but meant measures central dispersion.

Today, my colleague Karen Thompson shares her experience of undertaking the MEd in Academic Practice. How this works next to a busy fulltime lecturing job, joining the masters via a non-traditional route and how it impacted her work and teaching.
In this episode I am talking to Dr Michael McEwan head of subject for our MEd in Academic Practice program. Michael is explaining a bit how credit bearing SoTL provision at the University of Glasgow is organised, and shares findings from a case study he conducted with early career researchers on our program and their perceptions and understanding of SoTL.
In this episode I am talking to Dr Matt Barr, who is a lecturer in the School of Computing Sciences, University of Glasgow about game based learning, gamification and how to undertake scholarship of teaching and learning to understand the impact these have on the learners.

In this episode I have the pleasure to interview Dr Natasha Taylor, about the international and asynchronous SoTLwalks she organises once a month online since the first pandemic lockdown hit. Natasha is originally from the UK but has been living in Australia for some years, so she kindly postponed her dinner and I my breakfast and we met at our respective ends of the ether to talk all things SoTLwalk.
These are the links to some of the resources and projects Natasha mentioned:

The original title was 'Living by the Proverb', this is a bit of an experiment contemplating how our upbringing our background influences and shapes our teaching identities, and why this is important for our practice.
