While many studies have acknowledged the positive impact of the scholarship of teaching and learning, also known as SoTL, issues and challenges in implementing SoTL at public universities, particularly in Malaysia, are not fully understood. Building on this gap, it is felt that there is a need to conduct a study on the SoTL grant recipients in Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM). This study chose the samples who could provide “rich and relevant information” to answer the research questions. The findings include issues related to (1) time constraints, (2) understanding SoTL concept, (3) SoTL inquiry, (4) student learning, (5) publication as an output, (6) difficulty in convincing others to change, (7) workload and (8) reflective practice. It is recommended that more trainings be given to SoTL recipients from various discipline areas, to ensure completion of the project and continuous mentoring be provided for them to ensure sustainability of SoTL. SoTL in UUM, it can be concluded, has empowered academicians in pursuing their academic endeavor.
