Researching Teaching and Learning Across the Disciplines

This short course is designed to introduce faculty members to the field of the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL).  In this course, our aim is to explore researching teaching and learning across the disciplines through a facilitated research development process to design a SoTL research project – from defining a research question and placing that question in the context of the relevant literatures, to determining appropriate research methodologies and exploring the ethical implications of your research design.  Throughout the course, you will be introduced to some foundational writings in the field of SoTL, while engaging in practical exercises that will result in a SoTL project that can be undertaken upon completion of the course.

Courses will take place in the Killam Library, Room B400 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm.
