CALT award for the scholarship of teaching and learning

Terms of Reference

1. The annual CALT Prize for Scholarship of Teaching & Learning honours exceptional contributions to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) by a Canadian law teacher. While SoTL is defined variously, a common understanding is that of investigating questions related to teaching and learning and sharing the answers obtained through peer review, publication, performance or presentation.[1]

2. Any member of CALT is eligible to submit a paper on teaching and learning in law. The paper does not need to be published or accepted for publication for submission. Submissions that have not yet been published will also be considered for publication in the Canadian Legal Education Annual Review (CLEAR).  Papers that have already been published must have been published in the last 3 years. Co-authored papers may be submitted if the primary author is eligible to submit a paper. Copyright in any paper submitted remains the property of the author. The committee will accept only one paper per author. Papers must be submitted for CALT’s SoTL award OR CALT Scholarly paper award, but not both.

 3. Papers must be submitted by February 13 2023 to:

Professor Angela Cameron

4. The nominations are considered by a selection committee composed of three people (law teachers or others) appointed by the president of CALT, Angela Cameron. The committee chair is a member of the CALT executive. The president does not have a vote in the selection process.
