Proposal Title

Reflective, Reflexive, and Recursive: The Praxis of SoTL

Proposal Abstract

SoTL is a theoretical orientation with practical application, which, in its time, yields fruits- products that can be judged using numerous criteria being proliferated. However, inquiry into teaching and learning and getting to the point where such inquiry is peer reviewed and made public through traditional venues is often a complex undertaking. As such, a look at the process oriented nature of SoTL is warranted. SoTL is reflective, reflexive, and recursive, and sometimes the only thing gained is coquina for the next time around. SoTL is laden with theoretical and practical as well as moral and social imperatives and must be continued despite challenges. I draw upon a study in which I have been engaged to illustrate the nature of SoTL. Given the process oriented nature of SoTL, it is incumbent upon the SoTL community to devise ways to recognize not only the products, but also the processes of SoTL.
