Part 1: Getting Started

  • becoming certified to do research with human subjects and submitting an IRB application.

Part 2: Designing Your Project

In Part 2 we will

  • discuss sample SoTL articles and consider various research designs, and

  • look at a variety of classroom assessment techniques.

Part 3: Going Public

In Part 3 we will

  • discuss the structure of SoTL articles, including conceptual framework, lit review, methods, evidence, and reflection; and

  • identify appropriate places for publishing your work.                                                                                    

Ongoing Support for your project will be offered through

  • regular meetings with other faculty working on SoTL projects to discuss progress, and

  • one-on-one, hands-on assistance from the facilitators and Chris Calienes (Office of Institutional Research, Assessment and Planning) with designing your project, analyzing and interpreting data, and revising your manuscript.
