Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Bradley will host a series of events to help faculty plan, conduct and evaluate their own Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects.  Open to both new and experienced SoTL practitioners, this series begins on May 12th 2017 with a workshop on planning SoTL projects conducted by Dr. Jennifer Friberg,Cross Endowed Chair in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning at Illinois State University.  Bythe conclusion of this workshop, participants are expected to walk away with a better understanding of SoTL practices, have formulated specific research questions and have an understanding of methods they will use to answer these questions.

During the Fall 2017 semester participants will implement their SoTL study under the guidance of a faculty SoTL mentor.  The SoTL series ends in January 2018 with the presentation of SoTL projects in the Spring Forum.  

Ten Bradley faculty participants will each receive a $1,000 stipend for full participation in the SoTL series, including monthly meetings with their SoTL mentor during the Fall 2017 semester and presentations of the state of their SoTL research during the 2018 Spring Forum. Applications are due May 5th.  Click here for application information and workshop schedule.  Click here for a editable application form (Word).
