2  Sources of literature for SoTL  Inquiry methods to evaluate teaching and student learning  Ethical issues in SoTL  Case studies  Lots of discussion and questions

3 The systematic reflection/study of teaching and learning made public McKinney, 2007

4  What is the “problem?”  Refining the question(s)  Searching the literature  Consider ethical issues  Design the study  Collect and analyze the data  Disseminate the findings McKinney (2007) is a good primer on SoTL

5 Thinking about teaching begins where all intellectual inquiry begins, with questions about what is going on and how to explain, support, and replicate answers that satisfy us. Bender & Gray, 1999

6  Practitioner pedagogical literature vs.  Educational literature  Separate and distinct, but related Weimer (2006)

7  Disciplinary-based pedagogical journals, e.g, Journal of Nursing Education  SoTL Journals, e.g., International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning  Educational journals, e.g., The Journal of Higher Education  Focused educational journals, e.g., Active Learning in Higher Education McKinney, 2007

8  MountainRise  Journal of Cognitive and Affecting Learning  International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning  International Journal of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education  Inventio  The Journal of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Available on-line

9  Knowledge Media Lab (Carnegie Foundation for Advancement Teaching)  Visible Knowledge Project (Georgetown University)

10  ERIC  EBSCO Academic Search Premier  Others, e.g., PubMed  But… none of these is comprehensive of journals focusing on education and/or SoTL  Key words?? SoTL…. College Teaching…

11 “The key to successful literature reviews involves combining traditional techniques with mining information compiled by researchers familiar with the literature.” Naylor as cited in McKinney (2007)

12  Wisdom of practice › Personal accounts of change › Recommended practices › Recommended content  Research Scholarship › Quantitative › Qualitative › Descriptive Weimer (2006)

13  Interviews and focus groups  Observational research  Questionnaires  Content analysis  Secondary analysis  Experiments and quasi-experiments  Case studies  Multimethod studies  Portfolios McKinney (2007)

14 “Clearly, disciplinary styles empower the scholarship of teaching, not only by giving scholars a ready made way to imagine and present their work but also by giving shape to the problems they choose and the methods of inquiry they use” (pg. 32). Huber (2002)

15  Clear goals  Adequate preparation  Appropriate methods  Significant results  Effective presentation  Reflective critique Glassick, Huber & Maeroff (1997)

16  Use of student work › How to obtain permission › Is informed consent really possible › Student role in SoTL  Choice of research design › Harm to participants  Going public with research › Damage to reputation of institution  Role of Institutional Review Board (IRB)  Overlapping roles of researcher and teacher

17  Identify SoTL projects as inquiry or research projects  Projects need to be planned  Design an informed consent process  Seek external review  Inform students at regular junctures of project Burman & Kleinsasser (2004)

18  Acknowledge that students control way their work is used  Proceed very carefully if using data from previous classes without student consent  Consider ways to involve students  Share findings with students. Burman & Kleinsasser (2004)

19  What is the question?  What sources of literature were used?  What methods were employed?  How were ethical issues handled?
