The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: What It Is, How You Do It, and Why You Should

Plenary Workshop: Thursday, October 7, 11:00 am - 12:15 pm EST

You are invited to join us for a lively session where you will learn more about what the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is, how you can integrate it into your scholarly work, and (at least some of) the reasons why you might want to.  We will follow an inquiry-guided process to explore SoTL, including its purpose, methods, and applications to your teaching and learning practice.  Our discussion will also include attention to emerging questions that are being asked about teaching and learning and the role SoTL aspires to play in addressing them. During the session, you will have the opportunity to explore new and existing SoTL work while also getting a head start on a potential project of your own.
