ISSOTL has two email lists. The ISSOTL-Membership listserv is automatic for all members, used strictly for announcements and information from the Society. The other is ISSOTL-Discuss, a tradition listserv through which members can communicate with each other, share information, announce SOTL events, and initiate discussions with other members. This list is voluntary, though, follow this link to sign up.
ISSOTL is also on Facebook, the free social networking service where you can communicate with other ISSOTL members, fans, and friends:

The International Commons is published every January, May, and October. We publish articles specific to ISSOTL and articles about SOTL in general. Suggestions include brief reflective statements, summaries, and/or photos of ISSOTL conferences or other SOTL events; responses to previous stories in The International Commons; brief statements about a recent SOTL article or book; and other SOTL news, events, stories, queries, and pictures. For more information, click "Newsletter" in the menu on the left.

Organize 10 or more ISSOTL members with shared interests such as discipline, pedagogy under study, nationality, region of residence, educational status, and institutional type. The Society particularly encourages Interest Groups with international membership and non-traditional groupings based on research interests.
Read ISSOTL's policy statement for more information about forming a new Interest Group or External Affiliate.
A growing international organization dedicated to the scholarship of teaching and learning needs leaders who are original thinkers, hard workers, and esteemed colleagues in the profession. ISSOTL’s officers establish new directions for the organization while managing the ongoing activities and services of the Society. Look for announcements from the ISSOTL Leadership and Elections Committee as new officers are needed. For more information, visit the Elections information on the Governance page.
As many observed at the 2006 ISSOTL conference, we need to better understand the terms and concepts essential to SOTL around in different countries and regions, rather than expect everyone to conform to the language used in North America or even the United States. Get involved by developing a thorough, international entry in Wikipedia.
