Improve my Teaching by Investigating my Practice: An Introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning

Public cible:
Faculty members interested in using evidence to inform their teaching practices

Join us for an interactive workshop that will explore how a SoTL inquiry can help you examine your teaching practice and make pedagogical decisions based on the information obtained through the process.  Whether your project is a small change such as an integration of a new digital tool, or something larger such as a redesign of a course evaluation, SoTL can help you to evaluate the change in your practice to reflect on student learning. Using the framework proposed by Bélisle, Lison et Bédard (2016), we will explore some practical examples of SoTL in action, as well as begin to consider how SoTL can be implemented in our own classrooms. You will leave this workshop with a plan to move forward with an inquiry in your own teaching context.  

Please note that you do not need research experience to participate in this workshop.  SoTL is for faculty members at all ranks and stages in their careers.  Discipline-based colleagues are welcome to enroll together to focus on a module-level project.

At the end of this workshop, participants should be able to:

  • Describe what is meant by inquiry into one’s teaching practice
  • Explain the principles of good practice in SoTL
  • Illustrate an aspect of one’s teaching that can be investigated through SoTL
  • Plan the phases for a SoTL project in your own context
