Hi Liz and Everyone,
At the risk of a double post (as I have been having a conversation with Paul on the question of "is SOTL discipline specific?") I would suggest that there is a broader dialogue that must entertain the scholarly activity that takes place at the "edges" of disciplines and thus in a "new zone" of learning. This zone is both the interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity areas of teaching and learning.

Have a look at this article on the subject of "cross-disciplinary conversations" and SOTL:

cheers,
