The Scholarship Of Teaching And Learning: What's Your Problem?
Facilitators, all members of Masonâs Faculty Learning Community on SOTL, will introduce the field of SOTL and the many ways that SOTL scholars approach teaching and learning problems. Because the focus of this session is on the participants, they will share a teaching and learning challenge, issue, or question they have about their own teaching in a workshop environment. In small groups with support from facilitators, participants will develop well-defined, actionable research questions that address the challenge they brought with them. At the conclusion of the session, participants will read their questions to the group for final feedback and then facilitators will conclude the workshop by introducing several common data collection and research methods within SOTL. All participants will be encouraged to join the Mason SOTL Faculty Learning Community to further develop their SOTL projects. Facilitators will also introduce the many ways that SOTL scholars make their work public, including the different genres of publication that are available in SOTL. This interdisciplinary group of co-facilitators represent colleges and disciplines across Mason, including the Volgenau School of Engineering (VSE), the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS), INTO Mason, the College of Health and Human Services, and the College of Science. They have worked together during the 2018-2019 academic year as part of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Faculty Learning Community.
