Got questions about your students' learning?
Then join KCTL's Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Program, led by Loretta Brancaccio- Taras (Biological Sciences, KCeL) and Janine Graziano (English, KCTL).
The SoTL Program is offered in three major parts:
Part 1: Getting Started
In Part 1 you will be guided in
reading and discussing preliminary SoTL materials,
framing research questions based on observations of your own teaching and learning experiences, and
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.
