SoTL Institute
Dates: Friday, January 3, 9:30-4:00
Friday, January 17, 1:30-3:30
Facilitator: Dannelle D. Stevens, Faculty-in-Residence for Academic Writing

In this Institute we will explore the scholarship of teaching and learning in the higher education classroom. Faculty participants will understand the rationale behind doing a SoTL project as well as the different types of SoTL projects others have done. Through hands-on activities, small group discussion and readings, the facilitator will support faculty in developing and designing a SoTL project to address their particular concern or curiosity about teaching and student learning. The meeting on the 17th continues the work started on the 3rd of January.

About SoTL

What is the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning? In 1990 Boyer wrote a book that describes and acknowledges a much broader notion of scholarship than the traditional experimental design performed in a laboratory. His notion is actually embodied in PSU’s Promotion and Tenure guidelines in the section defining scholarship. One aspect of Boyer’s view was focused on the scholarship involved in our teaching. SoTL encourages faculty to look at their teaching practice as a source of scholarship, that is, something about which they can ask questions, gather data on, write about, and share with others in public forums such as poster sessions, department meetings, or even journal articles. This type of scholarship has grown substantially in the last 20 years so that the vast majority of disciplines have journals devoted to teaching of the discipline (e.g., Journal of Engineering Education, Focus on Business Education, Teaching of History).
