At PIP, we believe the connection between inquiry and practice is at the core of SoTL pursuits. The questions that researchers choose to pursue come from their teaching and learning practices and inform subsequent practices. Reviewers are an important part of that process because they help draw out the interdisciplinary relevance of context-specific inquiries.
