We invite all graduate students interested in SoTL to join us for our fifth discussion-based session, Asking SoTL Questions.
We will take some time to become acquainted, review SoTL foundations and reflect upon the session’s reading, Pat Hutchings’s introduction to Opening Lines: Approaches to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (2000). Hutchings taxonomizes typical SoTL questions and observes common features in SoTL work. She describes SoTL as an inclusive, energetic and intellectual community, and Opening Lines as a text that intentionally captures early-stage SoTL work. Her description serves as a catalyst for reflections about our own SoTL questions.
Session five’s reading is: Pat Hutchings’s “Introduction: Approaching the scholarship of teaching and learning” in Hutchings, P. (Ed.) (2000). Opening Lines: Approaches to the scholarship of teaching and learning. Princeton, NJ: Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning.
