Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Writing Circles

This year, the Center for Teaching Excellence is again hosting learning communities for faculty members interested in the scholarship of teaching and learning (commonly abbreviated as "SoTL").  Over the course of the semester, members of each group will meet multiple times to keep one another on track in their SoTL projects and share feedback.  Groups will have 3-5 members and will set their own schedule.

How the Writing Groups Work

Small groups, individual attention, & regular meetings:  This semester, the CTE is piloting a new form of SoTL support: writing / project groups.  Each writing / project group will consist of 4 people who meet at least 4 times across the semester at a time that works for everyone. (So, group meeting times will be determined by the group at their first meeting.)  Groups will provide feedback to one another about their projects and help keep one another on track. 
Fall, Spring, or Both:The groups will be set up on a semester-by-semester basis.  You may opt to participate for only one semester, or to continue on for multiple semesters.  Signing up now only commites you to the current semester.  


The SoTL Writing Circles use a WordPress website to share resources and meeting info.  Anyone can access it and take a look around.  Writing Circle members will also receive a book about SoTL to use over the course of the semester.
