SEER Center and SoTL team up to present “Is the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Happening in My Classroom?”
Have you ever had a question about your students’ learning you couldn’t quite figure out? Did you plan an activity for your classroom that didn’t match up with your expectations? These are the types of questions SoTL scholars explore in their research. The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) allows instructors in higher education to examine student learning and their own teaching practices in the classroom by contributing these experiences to the research literature. Supported by CIRTL (Center for the Integration of Research, Teaching and Learning) and the SEER (Scientists Engaged in Education Research) Center, this workshop will provide a clearer picture of what it means to be a SoTL scholar and how to achieve the three levels of CIRTL participation as a SoTL scholar: Associate, Practioner, and Scholar.
