The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) focuses on investigations of teaching practices and student learning within a discipline or across disciplines in higher education. If you are curious about your students’ learning and want to explore the intersection of teaching and scholarship, join us for this interactive webinar, where you’ll gain practical suggestions for any stage of the SoTL research process, from generating initial ideas to presenting or publishing the research. Webinar link and information will be emailed to participants a few days before the webinar.

Participants in the 2018-19 CETL Faculty Learning Communities came together to learn about a particular topic of interest and to create a product to share with the campus community. Read more about these commendable projects below:

Participants at the 2019 SoTL Institute enjoyed some time away from campus to learn more about SoTL and focus on their individual SoTL projects.

The deadline to submit a proposal for the Research on Teaching and Learning Summit is approaching soon! Please submit your proposal by April 30, 2019. The Summit will be held at the KSU Center on Friday, October 18, 2019.

Workshop
Campus: 
Location: 
Academic Building (H) - Room 202

Have you taught a class where students are highly engaged and are outperforming your expectations? What is so special about that class? How can you document what is happening so you can reproduce that impact in the future? In this workshop we will discuss the components of conducting scholarly action research in the classroom. We will also study several examples of successful applications for Institutional Review Board approval that you may be able to adapt to your own classroom research. Participants will leave with the beginning of an action plan to turn what started as a successful class into a scholarly paper as well.
