Proposal Abstract

Being a practiced educational researcher does not automatically prepare one to do research on/in one ' s own classroom. The presentation will target faculty in higher education who want to forge a closer tie between their teaching and research obligations. We have energized our own professional commitments through strengthening the connections between teaching and research. Our work draws on a synthesis of learner-centered teaching (Weimer 2000; McCombs 2004), critical pedagogy (Wink 2005), adult development theory (Baxter Magolda and King 2004), and critical reflection ( Brookfield 1995). Critical pedagogy provides multiple lenses to query assumptions and experiences of teaching and learning. Constructivist developmental theory provides both an understanding of the developmental trajectory of learners and a vision of the goals for their development. There are many positive functions of SOTL, one is that it is scholarship and the most critical one is to enhance student learning ( McKinney , 2007).
