An Introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: A Keynote Address for the IUP Community

  • This keynote address was held on Friday, September 18, 2015 from 2:00 - 3:00 pm in the Delaware Room of the HUB.

    This keynote address for university administrators, faculty and staff provided an overview of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) with the goal of raising awareness of and motivating interest in SoTL.  Beth Dietz-Uhler and Catherine Bishop-Clark explored the various definitions of SoTL, the purpose and motivation for engaging in SoTL, and some practical and pedagogical issues.  Drs. Uhler and Clark from Miami University (Oxford, OH) co-authored the book: Engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: A Guide to the Process and How to Develop a Project from Start to Finish, which outlines the steps of SoTL research and gives examples of SoTL projects that employ these steps.  Using their five step process laid the groundwork to develop a publishable SoTL project!  This session was open to the entire university community and was followed by a Saturday workshop for faculty to create a SoTL project in their classroom.
