Faculty Reading Group on the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL)
- Learning Commons
Happy Hour Reading: "A content means to a critical thinking end: Group quizzing in history surveys" (from The History Teacher)
Why read it: Offers a quizzing strategy with substantial impact for learning and raises questions about content that we aren’t asking often enough.
SoTL Description: In a recent post on the Teaching Professor blog, Maryellen Weimer offered a “Best of” list of 2013-2014 articles in the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL). We’ve used that list to organize a faculty reading group—it’s a way to connect with colleagues and take a look at examples of scholarly inquiry into teaching and learning.
In each meeting, we’ll talk about the “stuff” of the article—the particular teaching and learning topic, the intervention(s) being tested, and the results—as well as the research/inquiry involved.
**Light refreshments will be served. Please RSVP.
ACCESSING THE ARTICLE: All articles are available under the e-reserves tab on the UB Faculty Resources site in Sakai. If you don’t currently have access to this site, contact Terry Ross at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SPECIAL INCENTIVE: Participate in four out of six sessions and write up your insights for the OAI blog, and you’ll receive a book of your choice related to your discipline, your scholarship, or teaching and learning. To view the full schedule for the SoTL Faculty Reading Groups, please visit the CELTT Webpage.
The Faculty Reading Group is co-sponsored by CELTT, the Office of Academic Innovation, and Langsdale Library.
