Thanks for the many thoughtful comments and questions here. I’ll respond first about disciplinary styles.
The issue of “disciplinary styles” is challenging, as some of you have explained. My sense is that there might be disciplinary styles in (1) asking questions, (2) research methodologies, and (3) ways to use and go public with findings. Some disciplines (such as physics) might struggle to use their research methods in SoTL research, but physicists still might productively have certain ways of asking SoTL questions (questions that matter a lot to learning/teaching in their discipline) and perhaps also have established disciplinary styles of going public with their findings (in physics journals or in posters at conferences). But physics faculty might want or need to collaborate with either STEM education specialists or others outside their discipline to develop appropriate research methods to answer their SoTL questions.
