In the reflective essay entitled “Navigating Boundary Experiences in SoTL: Pinch Points, Paradigms, and Perspectives,” Janice Miller-Young, Michelle Yeo, and Karen Manarin share some of the challenges they experienced working together on an interdisciplinary SoTL research methods book. Despite years of collaborating with each other, they characterize the definitional work of writing the book as a “boundary experience,” an extended period of deep engagement, negotiation, and even compromise with each other, requiring open-mindedness, trust, and a shared vision for success.
