Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) from Start to Finish (Online Roundtable)

Tue, 9 Mar 2021 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Must register by Mon 3/8 at 12 PM.


Hoping to develop new scholarship projects that are realistic amid the changing demands of pandemic teaching? Want to learn about researching your teaching but don’t know where to start? Learn about the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) from the Engaged Teacher Scholars (ETS) from the Center for Faculty Innovation. Participants will have access to a website one week before the event to learn about all the aspects of SoTL from starting a project through dissemination. Then join a synchronous online roundtable event where participants will meet other scholars investigating learning in their courses. Facilitators will offer opportunities to discuss the information learned about SoTL in rotating breakout room discussions, answer questions about conducting and disseminating SoTL research, and can meet potential collaborators for SoTL projects.
