About The Journal

Aims and Scope

AJSoTL is an international, peer reviewed, open-access, online journal that is published twice a year, in May/June and November/December. The journal values its location in Asia and aims to develop Asian perspectives on the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). Consequently, AJSoTL seeks to promote SoTL in and beyond classrooms located in Asia so as to develop practice in the service of improved student learning outcomes in the varied contexts in Asia, though it also welcomes comparative work with non-Asian locations.

The journal invites rigorous, scholarly investigation of topics related to all aspects of teaching and learning, including evidence-based contributions relevant to designing effective learning environments, the educational affordances of technology, and scholarly approaches to high-quality assessment and feedback, curriculum design, and other relevant practices.

We also welcome critical reflections on SoTL itself, how SoTL is practised in Asia, and the meaning of “Asia(n)”. By using the term “Asia(n)” we do not mean to essentialise; rather, we seek to encourage scholarly dialogue and inquiry cognisant of teaching and learning challenges and opportunities that may be present in Asia and elsewhere. Contributions are therefore welcome to problematise and query notions of “Asia,” “Asian practices”, and “Asian-ness,” in particular the degree to which the “centre” and the “margin” can inform and engage each another.
