Lorraine Gilpin photo The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning community at Georgia Southern has suffered a tremendous loss. One of our own, Lorraine Gilpin, Professor in the College of Education passed away on August 30. Lorraine was a devoted SoTL advocate, a dear colleague and a beloved friend. She has been an active member of the SoTL Leadership Team, served on the review board for the SoTL Commons Conference and was the Editor of the International Journal of SoTL. Her achievements are many and her contribution to SoTL extensive, but it is her personal qualities that we will miss the most. It is very hard to find the right words to express our loss and our thoughts are with her family during this time of sorrow. We ask for your patience as we mourn her loss and transition the Journal to a new Editor. Feel free to still forward your submissions to the online management system and send any inquiries to sotlij@georgiasouthern.edu, but please expect a short delay in the review process. We appreciate your understanding.

International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning is an open, double-blind peer reviewed electronic journal published twice per year by the Centers for Teaching & Technology at Georgia Southern University. The journal is an international forum for research and information about the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and its applications in higher/tertiary education.
