Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is a growing movement. The main purpose of the EuroSoTL conference is to be an arena for the scholarship of teaching and learning in Europe – across institutional, national and disciplinary boundaries and focus on how SoTL can impact people and practices.

The award was given for the collegial project done by this group at the bioCEED teacher course Collegial Teaching and Learning – in STEM Education: Active learning and course alignment in thematically complex courses. You can read the paper in the conference proceedings here: http://konferens.ht.lu.se/uploads/media/Borstad_etal.pdf.

The Joanna Renc-Roe Award is presented during each EuroSoTL conference to the contribution that distinguishes itself for pushing the boundaries of SoTL. The nature of the award is an honourable recognition and a diploma, presented to the authors of the selected contribution during each conference.
