The SoTL Retreat is designed for full-time faculty members interested in obtaining professional development funding and consulting to support their work in the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL, inquiry concerning student learning and the teaching practices that affect student learning). Faculty members submit proposals to CETL for consideration, which may include SoTL projects at any stage of development, from conceptualization to execution to write-up for publication.. CETL selects participants based on the quality of the proposal, which include clear articulation of the SoTL project, current progress on the project, and goals for participation in the SoTL Retreat.
The agenda for the retreat depends on the participants and the status of their projects. The retreat will include:
• an overview of SoTL research and resources;
• one-on-one consultations with CETL staff;
• individual work time; and
• daily opportunities for participants to share their ideas, discuss progress on their projects, and receive feedback from CETL staff and other retreat participants.
