Abstract

Excerpt: The title of this essay derives from an earlier essay by Lee Shulman (2011) in which he asks this very question along with many others about the future of SoTL. His question was prompted by a challenge that he received from someone in the area of science education research to the effect that SoTL was inviting non-experts to attempt what is a very complex and rigorous task after very little training. When I read that essay, my reaction was “Yes, that’s right! I’ve had that same question myself. How can we expect a discipline-based expert to develop expertise virtually overnight in order to ‘do’ SoTL?” So my essay is based on my own experience trying to do that very thing and my resulting attempt to answer that challenge.
