Sophia Abbot’s “SoTL Citizen: Home and Exile in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning” describes what a journey can look like when SoTL is begun as an undergraduate student. Her unique personal and academic journeys have led her to develop a rare identity as a “SoTL citizen,” yet at the same time she has had to push past “repeated questions and gatekeeping” as a student and young scholar. She encourages the reader to push boundaries, to keep the field open, and ultimately to create radical change in higher education.
