Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) supports and promotes the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) among Appalachian State University faculty. We partner with other units on and off campus to provide opportunities for faculty to be on the cutting edge of pedagogical, technological, and trans-disciplinary creative projects, such as global service learning, civic engagement, and creating healthy, just, and sustainable societies.

The center provides programs and supporting services that emphasize teaching and learning research including:

  • Grant writing
  • Developing and executing research designs
  • Submissions and presentations of research findings

Please feel welcome to participate in our programs and workshops, and also in our offices to discuss your ideas, interests, and perceived obstacles so that we can help chart a course to academic and personal success.
