The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is gaining prominence in Malaysian public universities since the launch of the differentiated career pathways (DCP) framework in 2016. The DCP framework aims to create academic ecosystems to nurture excellence and leadership in teaching, research, professional practice and institutional leadership through four different pathways — Teaching, Research, Professional Practice and Institutional Leadership. The teaching career pathway was introduced as a way to give due recognition to academics who engage in SoTL.
In recent years, involvement among UPM academics in SoTL has increased and become more visible. Due to this development, the Centre for Academic Development (CADe) is pleased to invite all academics to submit original manuscripts that reflect SoTL’s value as a vehicle to advance student learning and at the same time showcase academic commitment towards teaching and assessment in the 21st century learning environment. Manuscripts related to investigations on issues or concerns of SoTL approaches in specific teaching-learning contexts are also welcome.
