Playing Hopscotch to Generate Well-Informed SoTL Research Designs

Plenary Workshop: Thursday, October 7, 3:15 - 4:30 pm EST

Hopscotch, a theoretical model and webtool, will be presented in this workshop as a resource to generate well-informed SoTL research designs. In addition to becoming acquainted with the nine steps proposed by Hopscotch’s framework in the development of thorough qualitative, quantitative and mixed-methods designs, participants will use the webtool to generate a visual representation of the key elements of a SoTL study they are interested in.
