In chapter 5, the book shifts focus to strategies for learning about and starting to conduct SoTL. One key way is through journal clubs. Celeste Suart, Michelle Ogrodnik, and Megan Suttie’s “Learning the Landscape: Using Journal Clubs to Introduce Graduate Students and Early-Career Researchers to SoTL” provides many recommendations for finding, participating in, or even creating a journal club. In addition to learning about SoTL, journal clubs can provide a supportive community and a multidisciplinary space for cross-fertilization of ideas, ultimately making the field “a little less intimidating.”
