4. CTE Graduate Student Workshop: Conducting Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

When: Thursday, April 24, 2014 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Where: Marie Mount : 0100
Event Type(s): Training

At the heart of the CTE's graduate programs is the philosophy that teaching, like research, is a scholarly activity, one which requires intellectual engagement and public conversation. One way to engage in scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) is to analyze student in your classroom as you make changes to your course or develop new curricular materials. This workshop is designed to be a crash-course on doing and publishing/presenting classroom-based research and is an opportunity to review some examples of SoTL research and discuss ideas for how to implement this in your own classroom as a teaching project.
