Proposal Title

Developing A SoTL Community of Practice for Faculty

Proposal Abstract

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL) and the Center for Scholarship and Research (CESR) at Minnesota State University applied for a grant from the Strategic Priority funds set aside by the president of the university. Each year competitive proposals are selected for funding. For 2007-2008 CETL/CESR applied and received a grant to organize and develop a SoTL Community of Practice. The plan was to fund 12 participants with a $1000 stipend along with free registration to two teaching/learning conferences and one night at the conference hotel for each conference. Although CETL was founded 7 years ago, the CESR office is new at Minnesota State Mankato. This was one way to demonstrate that CETL and CESR could work together to aid faculty in SoTL research.
