This SIG was proposed and developed by the first cohort of the NSF-sponsored Faculty Learning Community (FLC) on SoTL in Linguistics, denoted in the member list with a (+) following their name. The first meeting of the SIG was held during the 2020 LSA Annual Meeting in New Orleans.


The SIG on Scholarly Teaching in Linguistics aims to provide opportunities for linguists to share, create, and disseminate information about scholarly teaching and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) in the field of linguistics by:

  • Enabling more efficient communication and organization between the LSA’s teaching-focused committees (e.g., AP Linguistics, Language in the School Curriculum, Linguistics in Higher Education) and initiatives (e.g., the Linguistic Academic Depository).
  • Providing resources and trainings for linguists on teaching.

  • Collaborating with teaching-focused LSA committees to propose and develop programming at LSA meetings and sponsored institutes that includes networking events, seminars, mini courses, webinars, workshops, and organized sessions on various topics related to scholarly teaching.

These efforts support the LSA’s mission and its commitment to community building, professional development, and cross-disciplinary communication. 



The SIG meets quarterly. Our most recent meeting was held on Wednesday January 26.

If you have any questions about the SIG (including upcoming meeting times), please contact the current Convener, Dr. Ann Bunger (Indiana University Bloomington). If you are interested in joining the SIG, please fill out THIS FORM.
