FALL 2014

Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Discussion Group
November 20th,
12-1:30 p.m., Sherman 114 B

Do you sometimes find yourself wondering about how students learn in your class? Have you ever analyzed your students’ assignments/-conversations/emails looking for clues about that? Are you interested in finding out whether a change you make in your teaching improves your students’ learning? If so, then join your colleagues for a continuing discussion about all aspects of planning, executing, and disseminating a scholarship of teaching and learning project. The sessions will all include ideas for asking good questions, gathering meaningful evidence, and reporting results, though the emphasis on each of these topics will cycle through the semester. Sessions will also include brief presentations of faculty projects. Participants attending any session will receive a copy of the book, Engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: A Guide to the Process and How to Develop a Project from Start to Finish by Bishop-Clark and Dietz-Uhler, Stylus Publishing, 2012. Lunch will be provided.
