MountainRise is an open, peer-reviewed, international electronic journal published twice a year by the Coulter Faculty Center for Excellence in Teaching & Learning at Western Carolina University for the purpose of being an international vehicle for the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL). By applying scholarly methodologies to the processes of teaching and learning, making that reflection and research public and open to critique, and thereby enabling a body of knowledge to develop, be reviewed and revised, the intellectual foundation, vision and practice of teaching are emphasized and enhanced. Such scholarship can be an important way to stimulate a new renaissance of teaching & learning for the betterment and enjoyment of all involved in the educational process, thereby expressing why the scholarship of teaching & learning is a legitimate form of scholarship and why teaching & learning scholarship could be a significant factor in making exploration and excellence of teaching and learning a keystone of academic cultures. MountainRise was born in the ancient mountains of western North Carolina in all their mystical beauty and presence. With the 2005 Fall/Winter issue, MountainRise became an international SoTL journal with Review Board members from around the world who are strongly committed to SoTL.
