Proposal Abstract

This session will describe a SoTL investigation of an innovative project connecting a graduate course in school counseling and an undergraduate course in early childhood special education. Students from the courses were paired with each another to complete an applied semester-long project involving consultation, classroom observation, and program planning. Student reflections collected through the duration of the project were used to evaluate student learning outcomes. The purpose of the session is to discuss 1) the nature of the project, 2) the outcomes revealed by student reflections, 3) the use of reflection as a source of SoTL data, and 4) the potential for cross-disciplinary teaching in higher education. Participants will explore the potential for cross-disciplinary SoTL projects in their own work. Participant learning objectives are twofold: 1) to learn about an innovative SoTL project and its outcomes and 2) to consider how similar applications can be integrated in their own pedagogy.
