Event Description

This session provides a framework for analyzing and incorporating the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) into classroom practices. SoTL involves scholarly inquiry into student learning and making findings public, in order to advance teaching and learning. A large body of literature contains findings from SoTL inquiries across numerous disciplines. In this session, participants will be introduced to SoTL and the body of literature associated with this field of study.

This session consists of three parts:
1) Identifying ways to incorporate SoTL and SoTL results into your teaching
2) Describing strategies for introducing teaching approaches into the classroom
3) Developing strategies to gather feedback from students, to inform your practice.

Examples in this session will be drawn from a variety of disciplines to provoke discussion across a broad range of subject areas and classroom environments.

Facilitators: Lesley Liu & Roselynn Verwoord
