1 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING Knowledge Media Lab (KML): Mission The Carnegie Foundation’s KML helps institutions and faculty take advantage of the growing power of emerging technologies and new media to turn the knowledge implicit in effective teaching into ideas, theories, and resources that can be used widely in a variety of situations.

2 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Making teaching practice visible and public Solicit it critical review Learn from and build on each other’s work

3 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING The Work of Knowledge Media Lab Devise new means of conveying faculty’s teaching knowledge and experience by creating models and formats (e.g., multimedia-enhanced eportfolios). Develop tools and resources that enable faculty to carry out this work more easily and effectively. Build online multimedia knowledge-repositories and forums in which faculty can examine, articulate, and share their ideas and practice.

5 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING The Carnegie Academy for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (CASTL) Foster significant, long-lasting learning for all students Enhance the practice and profession of teaching Bring to faculty members’ work as teachers the recognition & reward afforded other forms of scholarly work

6 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING Interdisciplinary Community of Practice and Reflection Biological Sciences Business Chemistry Communication Economics Education Engineering English Foreign Languages Health Sciences History Interdisciplinary Studies Law Literature Mathematics Performing Arts Philosophy Physics Political Science Psychology Religious Studies Sociology Teacher Education Theology

7 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING How can we successfully build a community of practice and reflection across disciplines? Use a common language/terminology (but, can we find one?) Take advantage of informal conversations and communications Use powerful metaphors for teaching and student learning Make implicit knowledge in practice and research not just visible but also easy to comprehend and transfer (e.g., using multimedia-enhanced eportfolio)multimedia-enhanced eportfolio

8 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING Key Challenges Accessibility vs. Shareability Technical and intellectual barriers Time efficiency Readability of multimedia-enhanced representations Lack of support/guidance for the intellectual development processes

9 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING Needs for the SoTL Support Tools Identify and select materials that reflect all dimensions of their teaching Prompt further analysis and reflection Organize their materials and reflections into succinct, engaging, and compelling representations Build online learning spaces to share SoTL work and generate collective knowledge as communities of practice and reflection

10 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING A Major Breakthrough: KEEP Toolkit The KEEP Toolkit enables non-technical teachers and students to examine, select and organize teaching and learning objects and transform them into visually appealing and intellectually engaging knowledge representations. Early CASTL Scholars’ Snapshots

11 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING KEEP Toolkit (will be compliant with the OKI/SAKAI/OSPI standards) Select and organize teaching and learning materials Prompt analysis and reflection Transform materials and reflections into compelling and engaging representations Share ideas for peer-review, assessment, and collective knowledge building Simplify the technical tasks and facilitate the evolving intellectual processes

12 THE CARNEGIE FOUNDATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF TEACHING The KEEP Toolkit provides frameworks and prompts through “flexibly-designed” organizational templates SoTL Project Snapshot Course Transformation Class Anatomy Early CASTL Scholars’ Snapshots
