Fall ALC: Scholarship of Teaching & Learning

  • Do you love teaching?
  • Do you want to learn more about the educational research that informs and supports teaching?
  • Are you curious about ways to share your teaching innovations with other teachers?

Then these meetings are for you!

The Center for Faculty Development and Excellence (CFDE) is accepting proposals for an Academic Learning Community on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (often called SoTL). This Academic Learning Community will consist of four meetings in the fall semester and will focus on the following topics: 1) an introduction to SoTL; 2) data & evidence in SoTL; 3) engaging students in SoTL work; and 4) how to “go public” with your SoTL work. We will also discuss and begin research on specific content topics for SoTL workshops in Spring 2016. Some examples may be: “Engaging Students in Large Classes” or “Best Practices for Bedside Teaching in the Health Professions.” The readings in this ALC will be empirically-grounded, and are intended to generate discussion among members of the group. 

Meetings are from 1:00-2:30pm in the Jones Room in Woodruff Library on the following days:

  • Friday, September 25
  • Friday, October 9
  • Friday, October 30
  • Friday, November 13
