Upcoming Initiatives related to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL)

PrintThe Reinert Center is currently accepting proposals and nominations for two important SoTL initiatives.  Please see below for more information.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS

The Paul C. Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Symposium

Deadline: Friday, May 23, 2014

We invite faculty and graduate students to submit a 500-word proposal for a poster
presentation on a current (in-progress) or recently completed Scholarship (or research) of
Teaching and Learning project. New research as well as research already presented at
national or local conferences is welcome.

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) involves researching questions about
teaching activities and student learning by formally studying the teaching and learning
activities of one’s course; answering those questions by assessing student learning and
effectiveness of teaching strategies; and publicly sharing results of this inquiry in a setting
that invites peer review, such as a publication or conference presentation.

The goal of the symposium is to showcase the SoTL work being conducted by Saint Louis
University faculty and graduate students, and to promote a community of SoTL
practitioners.

For more information on the symposium and participation guidelines, please visit our website.

The Reinert Center for Transformative Teaching and Learning is pleased to invite nominations for the 2014 James H. Korn Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Award.

One of the goals of the Reinert Center is to promote faculty inquiry and scholarly research on teaching and learning. In 2006, the Center established the James H. Korn Award for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in recognition of Psychology Professor Emeritus Jim Korn’s many contributions to research on teaching and learning.
