East Campus Library
Dr. Maryellen Weimer will speak to the core themes of her book Enhancing Scholarly Work on Teaching and Learning, with particular attention to understanding how this body of research can be legitimized and advocated for across disciplines. This discussion will foster understanding of the value of two main categories of SoTL work - the wisdom of scholarship and research scholarship. Advice for both SoTL scholars as well as administrator allies who wish to more deeply understand and/or encourage the scholarship of teaching and learning will be provided.
This event is sponsored by the Office of Research and Public Service and the Faculty Research Council.
