Proposal Title

Writing around the World: An ISSoTL Collaborative Writing Group's Success Story

Proposal Abstract

This presentation relates one writer's perspective of a successful collaborative writing experience that spanned a year and a half and was shared by eight international participants. The collaboration resulted in a published contribution in Teaching & Learning Inquiry: The ISSoTL Journal, "Writing Without Borders: 2013 International Writing Collaborative." The objectives of the presentation will be to: 1) outline the research and findings of the international collaborators who wrote the journal article entitled, "SoTL and Students' Experiences of their Degree-Level Programs: An Empirical Investigation," 2) conduct an interactive exercise with the audience to examine the problems and benefits found within a collaborative writing experience, as discovered by the international writing group during the many months spent researching, collaborating, and writing the journal article, and 3) provide a model for collaboration to those who may have reservations about collaboration as a venue for SoTL research, whether locally or internationally. At the end of the presentation, audience members will be able to 1) summarize findings, regarding SoTL research that reflects an interest in the way students experience their degree-level programs, and 2) use a model for collaborative writing that empowers them to participate in such projects for the advancement of SoTL research .
