These include books on designing/doing SoTL, examples of SoTL projects, SoTL in the disciplines or related to teaching specific topics, and issues in the field of SoTL. Most of these books are useful to those in any discipline.

Are you new to SoTL? Are you a more experienced ‘SoTLer’ but looking to expand your knowledge of the field? Are you a faculty developer who helps others do SoTL? If any of these apply to you, perhaps you will find one or more of the following books useful. This list is a sample of books about SoTL or reporting on SoTL and published in the last 15 years.
