Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: Building a Research Line of Inquiry from Your Class

In this session, Pam Eddy will provide definitions of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and stimulate a discussion of how faculty might combine the actions of research and teaching to meet multiple professional needs. First, we will discuss how to build a research component into your teaching to provide information and data to create presentations and publications on the scholarship of teaching. Second, we will review how your scholarship of teaching will help inform and improve your classroom teaching. A variety of forums and outlets for SoTL research will be included.

Koehler Event Sessions

This is one of three events available for the Koehler Event: Women in the Academy. On September 25, 2014, The Koehler Center will host a keynote luncheon (11:30AM-1:00PM) followed by two simultaneous breakout sessions (1:30PM-2:30PM). Faculty may attend both the keynote luncheon AND a breakout session of their choice. Alternately, faculty are welcome to attend only the keynote luncheon or only a breakout session. Whatever combination you choose, we ask that you register for each of the three possible events separately.
