Making the Turn to SoTL: How do research faculty make the turn to studying their teaching?
Friday, January 19, 2018 - 12:00pm
Join a discussion with Professor Leslie Schiff and Professor Julie Reynolds about their National Science Foundation-funded research into teaching in STEM disciplines. Drs. Schiff and Reynolds will discuss their collaboration on the grant, how their own research has informed their teaching, and why they study teaching and learning in their fields. Participants will (1) learn strategies to integrate their research and teaching roles; (2) understand motivations for engaging in scholarship about teaching; (3) identify possible pathways for their own work as teacher/scholars and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 17th. Leslie Schiff is a Professor of Microbiology and Immunology and Associate Dean for University Curriculum at the University of Minnesota. Julie Reynolds is an Associate Professor of the Practice in Biology at Duke University. She leads the $3 million NSF funded project Collaborative Research: Accelerating the pace of research and implementation of Writing-to-Learn pedagogies across STEM disciplines. This discussion is part of the Duke Faculty Write Program's conversation series "Writing Lives/Teaching Lives: How faculty integrate scholarship and teaching." Co-sponsors include the Center for Instructional Technology and the Language, Arts, and Media Program.
