Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Symposium

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Symposium will be held on Friday, October 23, 2015. Poster presentations will take place from 2:00-3:00 followed by the ceremony and reception for the James H. Korn Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Award from 3:00-4:30.

We invite all faculty and graduate students to attend the second annual Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Symposium. 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.

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.
