Advocates of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) argue that teaching and learning must be student-centered, experiential, collaborative, and interprofessional. Researchers must collect data on the outcomes of such learning systematically and disseminate it. This careful approach to documenting student learning and effective teaching facilitates public recognition of the scholarship involved in teaching and learning. Faculty and students can participate in the national, interprofessional, case-based CLinician/Administrator Relationship Improvement OrganizatioN (CLARION) competition in order to implement SoTL. In this paper, we describe the CLARION experience, present examples of the qualitative and quantitative data researchers can compile to document student learning, and show how participation in such an experience can result in additional collaborative and interprofessional activities for students and faculty.
