Well, I can't speak for the top 10 SLACs which I've gotten the sense that they are approaching R1 expectations — e.g., i've heard people name drop schools and say, well we're not "XXXX" who run people through the ringer with tenure.
But for mid-level SLACs, the focus has absolutely been on teaching and the breadth of courses you can cover. the typical questions are to describe assignments, philosophy for student learning, and the type of advising (e.g., just help with course selection vs. post-graduate career planning). What I think has made me marketable for teaching schools is that I have 6 course preps (and 2 potential preps) that would help any small teaching dept in course coverage. Without my 3.5 years of teaching experience, I don't think I could speak at length about my philosophy… it really only is with that experience that I can think/talk in depth about what i do differently in each of the courses (lower vs. upper div, survey vs. seminar, methods) and why.
regarding research, the sense that i've gotten is that they above all want you to be able to do research that will engage the students. both schools required directed independent research for all majors, so they need someone that can have students do coding or collect data and form smaller projects that can be presented at conferences or contribute as a study in a publication. in my application this year, i'd only had 1 new 1st author empirical publication since grad school, with 1 R&R, and 1 under review.
Ultimately, if you're really coming from an R1 or research-heavy post-doc, the onus is on the candidate to clearly explicate why you are making the move… so if you've been pub-heavy, you need to explicitly reassure the committee that 1) you'd be happy having less time to do research and 2) would still have the resources/ideas to do your research but with undergrads and not graduate students. if you need an fMRI to do your research, it is unlikely that a SLAC is the place for you… in both instances, the dean/provost joked that they are generous with start-up funds UNLESS YOU NEED AN FMRI! ha!
