Research in teaching & learning: designing a project
Thursday 1 November: Seminar Room 2, Learning Innovation Building (17) SoTL projects are rewarding ways to engage more deeply with aspects of teaching and learning you find intriguing and, in doing so, to develop new insights or practices to share with others. This session addresses key considerations in designing a SoTL project – articulating the problem or question that focuses the project; reviewing earlier work on this topic; determining what outcomes are achievable (and what are not); planning activities appropriate to your outcomes; and, collecting evidence to provide credible support for your eventual conclusions or claims.
