The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL): Where to Begin

January 14th, 2016  -  9:00-11:00 am

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is systematic inquiry into what, how, and why students learn to do not learn what we teach. In SoTL instructors explore questions about their students' learning and systematically collect and analyze evidence to better understand and improve teaching and learning. Like traditional forms of scholarship, SoTL results in work that is public and that can be reviewed and built upon by peers.

Presented via webconferencing by Bill Cerbin, professor of psychology and director of the UW- La Crosse Center for Advancement of Teaching & Learning. He has been involved in the study of teaching and learning for many years as a cognitive psychologist and teacher-researcher. In 1998 and 2003, he was selected as a Carnegie Scholar with the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. In 2003, he founded the College Lesson Study Project, and has worked with hundreds of college teachers to use lesson study as a way to improve teaching and learning, and to engage in the scholarship of teaching and learning.
