Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Databases for the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning

This guide offers some "best bets" in terms of where to search for research pertaining to the scholarship of teaching and learning  (SoTL). Many teaching and learning journals are indexed in the education databases, thus starting with a combined search of ERIC, Education Research Complete and Academic Search Complete through EbscoHOST is a logical strategy. Beyond that, you can use citation tracking databases to connect to newer research or highly cited studies related to your area of inquiry, search broad multidisciplinary collections, or subject-specific databases. Consult the library's Guides for additional subject-specific databases. 

These databases allow you to track research patterns by finding highly cited articles on a topic or looking up where a specific article has been cited.
