How to Conduct and Publish a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Project

Spring 2022

348, James E. Walker Library (LIB)

More Details

The concept of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is variously defined as teaching as scholarly work, evidence-based methods to study effective teaching and student learning, and systematic research and dissemination about teaching and learning. This can include reports on particular classes (e.g., something that worked, qualitative or quantitative assessments of changes; reflective essays, summaries, or integrations of scholarship on teaching; comparisons of courses or student change across time) and more formal research (experimental designs, systematic literature reviews, meta-analyses). In this workshop, we will discuss a systematic approach to designing, assessing, and publishing SoTL projects. Several example projects will be described, from conception to publication. We will also discuss ways that the LT&ITC can consult with you on your project ideas.

Follow us on Twitter to stay up-to-date on planned workshops, special events, and faculty book groups as well as highlighted articles that may be of interest to you.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.

If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Sheila Otto.
