If so, the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)
Faculty Learning Community (FLC) may be just what you seek.
The Center for Teaching Excellence, with support from
the Office of the Provost, is sponsoring a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
Faculty Learning Community for the 2016 calendar year.
The learning community emerges from the
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Keynote address and workshop given by Dr.
Cathy Bishop-Clark and Dr. Beth Dietz-Uhler from Miami University of Ohio this
The SoTL FLC will begin
meeting in the Spring 2016 semester and continue to work through Fall
2016. This community will engage IUP
faculty in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) through conducting a
SoTL study in an IUP course during Fall 2016.
The learning community will meet monthly during the spring and fall
semesters to plan, implement, and evaluate a Scholarship of Teaching and
Learning project. Meetings will last
approximately two hours and the community will go through the entire SoTL
process including research design, IRB protocols, individual questions and
challenges, and presenting and publishing the results.
We are assembling a diverse group of both junior and
senior faculty representing a wide variety of disciplines and experience
levels. The group is limited to ten
participants who must commit to attending monthly meetings, completing a SoTL
project in their classroom during Fall 2016, and applying to publish and/or
present their findings in scholarly forums.
Additional information is included in the
application form. Applications must be
submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org by
January 4th. Please contact
