Developing a SoTL Project

Event Date & Time

  • January 10, 2017

Event Description

Have you or the course instructor tried a new teaching technique (or want to) but remain unsure of whether it was effective? Are you curious about the effect of some practices in your course? Would you like to learn more about your students and their learning?

This workshop will help you design a research project to evaluate quality of teaching and learning in your course. Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is the systematic inquiry into teaching and learning processes and their effectiveness, made public. In this workshop you will learn the fundamentals of SoTL in terms of approaches, ethical considerations, and first steps. You will leave the workshop with a better understanding of SoTL practices, as well as a blueprint for your very first SoTL project. 

You invest a lot in improving your teaching – this workshop will help you evaluate whether you achieve your goals, using a research lens.

Facilitators: Kristi Carey and Ido Roll
