NEW Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

Faculty Learning Community Forming

Do you have questions about your teaching and student learning that you’d like to turn into research questions and hypotheses that can be answered empirically?

Would you like to work with a group of like-minded faculty who are also researching meaningful questions about their teaching and their students’ learning?

Members of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning faculty learning community will meet over the course of the spring 2016 semester, read articles on SoTL, attend at least 2 meetings, and participate in a workshop given by Dr. Michele DiPietro called “Moving your SoTL Project Forward”. The workshop will take place on Tuesday, June 7, 2016 from 8:30-4:00 on the URI Alton Jones Campus. In addition to participating in the meetings listed, faculty members will design a SoTL project, carry out the research, and publish the findings in a journal and/or present them at a conference.
