SoTL vs Scholarly Teaching
Here’s a video from Elon University's Center for Engaged Learning ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eedxoj1CPnk) in which a number of scholars discuss the difference between the scholarship of teaching and learning and scholarly teaching.

In what ways do YOU make your teaching achievements public?
