About this guide

This guide was created for the President's Teaching and Learning Collaborative (PTLC), but may be of use to all faculty.

What is the PTLC?

The purpose of the PTLC is to offer professional development to assist University of Colorado faculty (system-wide) in developing inquiry projects on teaching and learning intended as scholarship and for publication. The aim of the program is to broaden participation of faculty in effective inquiry in learning and teaching.

The PTLC homepage is available here.

Who is my Library Contact?

At UCCS, Sue Byerley is the librarian working with the scholars of the PTLC.

Accessing Content:

Many of the resources on the guide link to freely available content. If you are researching from off-campus you will need to use the VPN for any subscriptions available through the library, including Ulrichsweb. If you are having trouble with your VPN connection, please contact the help desk.


The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) goes beyond simply using effective or innovative teaching methods in the classroom, commonly called scholarly teaching. It involves inquiry into teaching, engagement, feedback, and reflection on teaching and learning. It also includes sharing results so others can review, critique and build on the work.
