The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL): Applying a Scholarly Lens to Our Instructional Practice
Join us on Friday, February 4th at 2:00-3:00 PM EST for a workshop on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). The Scholarship of Teaching of Learning (SoTL) “involves faculty undertaking systematic inquiry about student learning – informed by prior scholarship on teaching and learning – and going public with the results”. Faculty, across the disciplines, who engage in SoTL are “assets” because they “generate visible analyses of student learning taking place in their institutions [and] provide excellent models of practice for local colleagues.” Carrying out SoTL is a powerful form of faculty development.
In this interactive, one-hour Zoom session led by Dr. Laura Baecher (Professor, Hunter College School of Education) we will learn about how a SoTL agenda is particularly relevant in these times of innovation in our instructional practices, and how SoTL research can be an additional component of our scholarly profile. We will consider forms of SoTL such as Discipline-Based Education Research (DBER) and Signature Pedagogy, and look at publication outlets and types of studies.
SoTL as a process and a product advances individual faculty, courses, programs, institutions, and the field of higher education. Join us for a 1-hour introduction to SoTL and find out how you can apply to be a CUNY SoTL Fellow for 2022!
