Volume IX contains the re-worked, peer reviewed, edited papers originally presented at STLHE 2015 in Vancouver, BC with the theme Achieving Harmony: Tuning into Practice. Submitted papers grouped themselves into five sections: I. Tuning Our Practice – Invited Papers (authored by conference keynote L. Dee Fink and six of the 3M National Student Fellows); II. Achieving Harmony through Our Learning Experiences; III. Practical Harmony in Our Teaching Experiences; IV. Tuning Achievement with Metacognition; V. Achievable Practice through Learning Environment Design. The editors invite readers to examine how our educational experiences can achieve harmony by tuning our teaching and learning practices.
