The SoTL Program is offered as three workshops and while it is designed for workshops to be taken in order, it is also self-paced so you can take subsequent workshops when you are ready.
Part 1: Getting Started

In Part 1 we will

  • read and discuss preliminary SoTL materials,

  • frame research questions based on observations of our own teaching and learning experiences, and 

  • discuss the requirements for 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.

In Part 3, we will
  • dscuss 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.
