What is meant by “evidence-based practices” in teaching? These are methods that have been studied and shown to be effective. There have been increasing numbers of publications in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL) from a variety of fields (not just education, but from a diverse group of disciplines) using empirical methods to look at faculty and student practices that enhance learning and experiences in the classroom. While I’ve curated some articles and books on some common topics, there is a world of literature in your own fields – frequently each discipline has an entire journal dedicated to education in the field, you can find some of these listed to growing resource page on Goucher’s Center for the Advancement of Scholarship & Teaching (CAST) blog called Discipline Specific Resources. Please note that this page is under construction (citations are not all in the same format or in alphabetical order yet, for example) and will be continuously amended. I welcome resources from all of you, too!
