Practical Intro to SoTL

Researching your own teaching: A practical introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning
The goal of this multi-day workshop is to support scholars in developing a viable research study that will be implemented within the next academic year. The workshop is intended to be pragmatic and interactive and will provide numerous opportunities for participants to work individually and in small teams to develop and refine their research projects. An overview of different research approaches and topics (e.g., defining your research question, methodologies in educational research, dissemination strategies, etc.) will also be provided.
