Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Fall 2014 Workshops

 

Research Learning Community (RLC)

Presenters: N/A

The Research Learning Community (RLC) provides a platform where faculty members can share common emotions, values, and beliefs related to scholarly inquiry into student learning which advances the practice of teaching. This provides an opportunity for faculty at SPSU to actively engage in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL), while learning together, and from each other. The community will be based on the advanced pedagogical design. Faculty members will be able to bring their ideas, share them with others, seek help and work together with the aim of making the research public in the form of conference and journal publications.
