CASTL Resources

Online Resources

CASTL Higher Education Collection  (from the Gallery of Teaching and Learning). A selected collection of websites that include faculty teaching portfolios and scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) projects that display the inquiry, processes, and reflections of faculty from disciplines including (but not limited to) mathematics, psychology, and music.

Scholarly and Professional Societies Program

Since 1998, the following scholarly and professional societies have indicated their support for the scholarship of teaching and learning, and/or worked directly with The Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning.

CASTL Campus Program

The CASTL Campus Program, coordinated with Carnegie’s partner the American Association for Higher Education (AAHE), organized institutions of all types to cultivate the conditions necessary to support the scholarship of teaching and learning. See a list of participating campuses from 2000 to 2006. Some of the best and most lasting work in the scholarship of teaching and learning has occurred within the context of campus collaboration around shared themes, interests, and values; twelve of these partnerships made up the Campus Program Leadership Clusters from 2002 to 2005.

Previous Work

Between 1998 and 2006, The Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning has worked with individual faculty, campuses, and scholarly and professional societies in an effort to help foster and build a scholarship of teaching and learning.

CASTL Affiliates Program

Since 1998, more than 200 institutions have been affiliated with CASTL. Many of these remain active through the CASTL Institutional Leadership Program and the CASTL Affiliates Program.

Institutional Leadership Program

The CASTL Institutional Leadership Program builds on the influential work undertaken by colleges and universities, campus centers and educational organizations, scholarly and professional societies, and CASTL Campus Program Leadership Clusters, to facilitate collaboration among institutions with demonstrated commitment to and capacity for action, inquiry and innovation in the scholarship of teaching and learning.

Study of Nursing Education

In its study of nursing education, the Foundation seeks to understand the demands of learning to be a nurse and the most effective strategies for teaching nursing. As part of Carnegie’s Preparation for the Professions Program (PPP), this study takes a comparative perspective to the issues of teaching, learning, assessment, and curriculum in nursing education.
