The schedule for the 2018 OPID (UW System) Faculty College is a bit different this year, and I’ve changed up my workshop offering. Instead of doing a multi-day workshop on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), I’m offering a more focused 75-minute workshop called “Doing Research on Your Students’ Learning: An Introduction to Scholarship of Teaching and Learning” on both Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. I’m in my sixth and final year of co-directing the Wisconsin Teaching Fellows & Scholars program, and I’m very excited to be working with one last cohort of UW instructors. This year also marks my seventh year as a presenter at Faculty College. I expect it to be my final year, at least for the time being!
It has been a good run, and I have learned from so many people along the way. I would like to thank the following people for sharing ideas that helped me develop my SoTL workshops over the past seven years: Angela Bauer, Lendol Calder, Bill Cerbin, Nancy Chick, Anthony Ciccone, La Vonne Cornell-Swanson, David Hastings, Aeron Haynie, Jennifer Heinert, Cyndi Kernahan, Regan Gurung, and Ryan Martin, and Alison Staudinger. I also benefited from feedback from participants in the 2012–2017 OPID Faculty Colleges, including five cohorts of Wisconsin Teaching Fellows & Scholars. I have enjoyed working with the new OPID Director, Fay Akindes. My favorite thing about OPID-style SoTL is the way that it brings together educators from all across the academy!
I have shared updated versions of my workshop handouts on the SoTL Resources page.
