Proposal Title

Faculty Inquiry Networks in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

Presenters

Jennifer Robinson

Proposal Abstract

“Faculty Inquiry Networks in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning”: Jennifer Robinson Scholarship of teaching and learning as a field is built on the expertise and insights of individuals focused on understanding and enhancing the learning of real higher education students in real educational settings. But that does not mean that the work of the scholarship of teaching and learning has to be solitary. Small-scale faculty inquiry networks offer entry into a community of scholars, so that the exploration and risk-taking inherent in improving teaching is supported while at the same time preparing that work for broader audiences. This presentation will pose several successful projects as models for small-scale networks within and across departments. The discussion of them will focus on ways to use existing resources and opportunities to advance local knowledge and scholarship in collaborative settings. The presentation will also suggest ways in which SOTL Commons presenters can expand their new and existing local networks to intersect with inter-institutional ones.
