This introductory workshop will introduce you to the community of teacher-researchers who identify problems worth investigating in their classroom and systematically study them. In addition to gathering tools to plan a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) study and contrasting different types of SoTL studies, you’ll identify conferences and journals for sharing SoTL research regionally, nationally, and internationally. It is recommended that participants review this webpage before attending the workshop: http://www.ctl.uga.edu/Getting-Started-SoTL. Details

Discussion, whether large-group or peer:peer, adds a personal dimension to the classroom. Effective discussion also stimulates students to more actively engage in the learning process, encourages collaborative thinking skills, and provides the opportunity for instructors to receive immediate feedback on student understanding. As a result, students gain confidence as they evaluate concepts or synthesize ideas. However, moderating successful, substantial discussions can be difficult. In the first half of this workshop, attendees will begin by exploring the role of the instructor in leading classroom discussions, contrast different instructional purposes for discussions, and consider scenarios representing classroom discussions gone awry. During the second half, a panel of award winning faculty will describe common pitfalls, tips, and strategies for moderating classroom discussions. Details
