Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Mini-Grants and Workshop Series

Have you developed or applied a new approach to your teaching? Have you been collecting assessment data relative to your students beyond grades? Do you have a potential research project related to teaching and learning but are not sure how to get started? The Center for Teaching and Learning offers an annual workshop series on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Two faculty from each college are nominated by Deans/Chairs to participate in the workshops.

Each workshop participant can receive up to $500 in registration/travel support for any conference presentation that emerges from his/her SoTL project. Participants receive a copy of Engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: A Guide to the Process and How to Develop a Project from Start to Finish, by Cathy Bishop-Clark and Beth Dietz-Uhler.

Workshop Outcomes

Through the online content and the face-to-face meetings, participants will be able to:

  • Create a SoTL-focused research question
  • Complete a preliminary literature review related to the research question
  • Discuss research methodologies suitable for a SoTL project
  • Select a methodological approach suitable for the research question
  • Develop a data collection strategy
  • Identify an existing data collection instrument suitable for the project or draft a data collection instrument
