The Society for the Teaching of Psychology announces the 8th annual STP SoTL Workshop. SoTL is defined as methodologically rigorous scholarly work conducted to enhance teaching and advance learning, ideally resulting in peer-reviewed products made public. We invite applications from faculty and graduate students who would like to accomplish developing and/or writing a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project.
The workshop will allow small groups of faculty/graduate student members to receive guidance on SoTL research from an experienced mentor and consult with both statistical and publication experts. Each participant will be placed with a mentor and a team of 3-4 peers. The mentor will support participants through the research process, which may include discussing ideas or analyzing, outlining, and writing a final product. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the research on teaching and learning. Participants gain support in how to design a study, analyze learning data, and/or writing a complete manuscript.
This workshop will be held at the same time and place as the STP Annual Teaching Conference (ACT) in October 19-20, 2018, in Phoenix, AZ. The cost of the SoTL workshop is $180 and includes all meals AND keynote sessions of the concurrent ACT Conference.
Mentors work with their teams starting in Summer, 2018 (by email/phone) to prepare for the workshop as well as Friday morning and Saturday afternoon of the workshop (from 8:30am Friday to 2:00pm Saturday).
If you are interested in being considered for the 2018 SoTL Workshop, please complete the application online using the link below before May 31, 2018.
Interested in serving as a SOTL MENTOR?: Would you like to serve as a mentor for faculty interested in conducting Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Mentors work with 3-4 mentees from approximately June preceding the October conference to the conclusion of projects. STP provides mentors with funds to offset attendance at the Writing Workshop. Mentors serve a 3 year term. If you have conducted SoTL and are interested in serving as a writing workshop mentor please email Writing Workshop Chair, Georjeanna Wilson-Doenges (firstname.lastname@example.org).
