Academic/ Professional Development - Research

Abstract

While numerous SoTL studies have focused on closing the learning gap of diverse students through the deployment of learning strategies to meet their needs, these studies may not explicitly recognize that both “learning” and “need” are by very nature socio-cultural endeavors, not simply tactical or pedagogical moves. This study examines results and implications of a year-long, pre-SOTL course to cultivate faculty habits of deep awareness of the teaching-learning process as an endeavor laden with socio-cultural, not just pedagogical, underpinnings. Participants will complete a self/institutional assessment, identify transferable factors of the model, and engage in a sample inquiry activity.
