ad 1: One problem I see is that we don’t have to convince faculty only, but also the administration. Two sometimes very different audiences. Our chancelor sees the writing center as a service unit. He is not interested at all that we are engaged in professional dialogue – in spoken or in written form. I would even think, that there is no assumption that professional competence is needed at all in what we do. In this respect we are extremely far away from SoTL. For us as pracitioners there is constant weighing up between what is most important: more practical work or time for scholarly reflection. I wish these two things were not opposites, but often they are. @Peter and Paul: You may have mentioned that, but is there some evidence that SoTL improves teaching practice?
