Developing a Fundable SoTL Grant Project

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is about using scholarly inquiry into student learning to advance the practice of teaching by making research findings public. Terms closely related to SoTL in the literature are good teaching (that which promotes student learning and desired outcomes and is recognized by student satisfaction, peer review, etc.) and scholarly teaching (in which teaching is regarded as an area of study andthe teaching and learning knowledge base is regarded as an additional discipline in which to develop expertise).  Research methods in SoTL include reflection and analysis, interviews and focus groups, questionnaires and surveys, content analysis of text, secondary analysis of existing data, observational research, and case studies, among others.

To promote faculty engagement in SoTL, UNC Charlotte offers a SoTL grant program through the Center for Teaching and Learning. 

This workshop will discuss how SoTL is a bridge between the teaching and research domains of faculty work.  It will also cover the SoTL grant program RFP and encourage faculty to turn ideas that interest them into projects eligible for this program.
