This interactive workshop will focus on the scholarship of teaching and learning, an international movement that has attracted faculty from a full range of disciplines, professional fields, and institutional types. We’ll look at what it means to be involved in such work and how faculty who take it up bring their skills and habits as scholars to their work as teachers. What kinds of questions are they asking? What forms do their investigations take, and how are their findings shared with others who can build on them? You’ll have a chance to begin framing an investigation of your own. And we’ll also talk about building a community of inquiry and practice--a “teaching commons”--in which this kind of work can be shared, supported and used to improve the student experience.
