Using Your Classroom as Your Research Venue: Strategies and Challenges
The scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) allows academics the ability to evaluate their teaching and students' learning using research rather than intuition. SoTL can be especially helpful when new teaching strategies are adopted but can also be used to evaluate long standing pedagogical techniques. Because the professor is both teacher and researcher, there are challenges to this type of research. The boundary between teacher and scholar can be bridged but effective research design is essential. This resource exchange will provide strategies for conducting research in the classroom including examples of projects that led to changes in teaching strategies and publications. The challenges and how to overcome them will also be included.
