Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Workshop √ §

Framing Your Own SoTL Research Project


Engineering : 102

Date & Time

July 18, 2024, 12:00 pm1:30 pm


In this hands-on workshop, we will apply Chapter 3: Thinking About SoTL Research Frameworks in Yeo et al.’s (2024) SoTL Research Methodologies in defining preliminary research questions and developing a research plan for your own SoTL research project. While it might be helpful in this session to have attended the chapter discussion on July 10th, it is not necessary to attend both sessions. This in-person session will lead you through a series of reflective and planning questions that will help you to sketch out a study that you can undertake of some element of your teaching or your students’ learning. You will have the opportunity to explain and refine your ideas with other participants and get help from FDC staff. This session is open to anyone who is interested, regardless of their experience with SoTL. Faculty who have participated in FLCs recently or have completed the ALIT or INNOVATE teaching certificate programs are particularly encouraged to bring ideas raised in those programs to this session. Together we will brainstorm how to pose SoTL research questions and design studies to answer them.
