Often, we ask questions and explore our educational practices in isolation, and we have gut feelings about their answers and implications. In the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), we have the opportunity to bring our private inquiry and our gut instincts into a supportive community for systematic exploration, reflection, and application.
So, if you have ever tried something new in your classroom or advisement practice and wondered why it worked (or why it didn’t), had a hunch about where your students were stumbling or succeeding but wanted a more methodical way to explore their learning, or had any other curiosities about teaching, advising, or student learning that you would like to explore in a systematic way within a supportive community, then SoTL is for you!
Our SoTL at SF Fall 2015 Series is a combination of online Canvas modules and face to face meetings that provide an introduction to SoTL and hands-on, step-by-step guidance through the steps of Action Research through a learning community of new and experienced researchers who provide reflection, support and sharing throughout the research process.
The face-to-face meetings will be in P- 264 from noon-2 p.m. on 10/16, 10/30, 11/13, and 12/4. By the end of the fall series, participants will have designed their own action research project to implement spring term.
