On the issue of writing SoTL: Yes! Many faculty in the US struggle to write up and publish their SoTL research. Sometimes the problem is the difficulty in finding a suitable journal to publish their work (although that is becoming less of a problem over time in the US). More often, faculty are trained to write in their disciplines, and writing about learning/teaching may not be easy or possible using the disciplinary genres and conventions they learned in their training. For example, as a historian I learned to never use pronouns (particularly “I” or “my”) in scholarly writing, but that makes it *very* difficult to write about my course and my students!
Recently quite a lot has been written in English about writing in SoTL. Some of this might be helpful to you; for example:
