Proposal Abstract

Each year Georgia Southern’s teaching center collaborates with the SoTL leadership team to fund and support SoTL fellows’ evidence-based research projects related to faculty efforts towards improving and better understanding teaching and learning.

In this panel presentation 2015-16 SoTL fellows will present their projects discussing the process and progress of their research, obstacles and resources they have encountered, and reflect on their individual SoTL journeys. Audience members will be invited to engage in discussion with panel members to ask and discuss questions related to SoTL, the SoTL Fellowship, and application of SoTL research/practices across disciplines. This session will achieve the following outcomes:

  1. Describe process and progress of SoTL research projects carried out by fellows;
  2. Identify institutional obstacles and resources for SoTL research; and

Ask and discuss questions related to this presentation.
