Proposal Abstract

Shifting from a teaching only focus to a teaching and research focus is not an easy path for faculty to follow. It can be met with panic in the faculty. Faculty who had previously been hired to teach are now being asked to extend their professional scope into research. Some may be equipped for the challenge. Some may need to refresh their research skills. Even beyond the skill level, there is also the time concern, the understanding of SOTL and the buy in to the value of the research across specific disciplines.

The focus of this presentation is how to aid the faculty in a transition to SOTL research. In partnership with Faculty Training and Development, and through building on demand SOTL information training sessions and a web based customized SOTL research question, awareness and participation has increased on campus. This presentation will speak to collaborative efforts that serve to build knowledge and skills required to aid in the development of a SOTL research culture amongst teaching faculty.
