CETL will sponsor a limited amount of travel funding for faculty to deliver teaching-related scholarship and actively participate in conferences specifically related to teaching and student learning as it occurs in a higher education setting. The conferences can be general teaching or SoTL conferences (such as those organized by the AAC&U, ISSOTL, Lilly, etc.) or they can be focused on teaching in specific disciplines.
CETL Scholarly Teaching will award travel funding for development of effective student learning experiences involving undergraduate research, service learning, or co-ops/internships as they relate to KSU’s It’s About Engagement Initiative. This funding is designated for faculty to deliver teaching-related scholarship, to actively participate in conferences or institutes, or to participate in other faculty development opportunities that have significant emphasis on one or more of the three areas of It’s About Engagement.
The CETL Faculty Learning Communities (FLC) program is designed to bring together small groups of faculty (no fewer than five and no more than seven) who are interested in focusing on investigating a particular teaching and learning issue for a full academic year. The experience is intended to enhance each participant's teaching in ways that may lead to documentable changes in student learning and, when appropriate, to the production of scholarship (e.g., presentations, publications) that disseminates teaching innovations.
CETL is seeking applications from faculty members interested in participating in a year-long professional development initiative to receive support as they complete a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project from initial concept to publication. SoTL involves scholarly inquiry concerning student learning and the teaching practices that affect student learning. Participants who complete the course and writing academy will be designated as SoTL Scholars and will have a manuscript ready to submit for publication by June 1, 2021.
