Why publish?

Sharing your findings is one of the defining characteristics of SoTL work.  Now that you’ve documented/collected evidence and learned some things about teaching and learning in your course or program, it’s time to share with others to get feedback and contribute insights that may help others in their teaching practice and our greater knowledge of teaching and learning processes.

Below is a selected list of possible publication venues.  Be sure to check out Kennesaw State’s comprehensive journal list.
