In this Q&A post, Dr. John Canning (The University of Brighton, UK) and Dr. Rachel Masika (Rachel Masika Consulting) respond to our questions which were formed based on the reading of their paper, “The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL): The thorn in the flesh of educational research”, published by Studies in Higher Education. In brief, their paper contends that SoTL, through its integration into higher education quality frameworks in the UK, has lost its distinct purpose by being too inclusive. This has resulted in existing higher education research being sidelined and created ambiguity as to what constitutes valuable teaching and learning research in the higher education context.
