Welcome to the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SOTL) Academy
The third annual academy will take place on May 16 & 17, 2011 in Ypsilanti, Michigan at Eastern Michigan University.
This conference seeks to bring together all members of the academy engaging in or wanting to learn about the scholarship of teaching and learning (SOTL). Applications are encouraged from experts and novices in this field, at all career stages. This national conference will provide a forum for presenting new SOTL work, for sharing reflections on SOTL and its role within the academy, and networking with others engaged in this enterprise.
Last year we invited proposals that represent SOTL work at all points on the continuum. Strands of work focused on:
The application of SOTL results in the classroom
Unique SOTL research designs and approaches
SOTL work from new scholars beginning their careers in the academy
Works in progress from graduate students collaborating with faculty
Creative approaches to mentoring graduate students in SOTL
Models of supporting SOTL across departments, campuses, and disciplines
Use of technology in SOTL
