Call for Blog Posts: Disciplinary State of SoTL Series

ISSoTL’s Advocacy & Outreach (A&O) Committee has been busy developing and sharing resources to support SoTL across stakeholders and contexts. Our newest effort focuses on soliciting disciplinary examples of SoTL advocacy and outreach. To that end, the A&O committee has created a series of blog posts related to the “Disciplinary State of SoTL.” The committee is hoping to add to these examples over the coming weeks and months.

Designing and Conducting a SoTL Project using a Worksheet: A Baker’s Dozen of Important Sets of Guiding Questions

Many of us have numerous SoTL research topics or questions floating around in our minds. We have multiple ideas for design and measurement. We have thoughts, perhaps concerns, about IRB issues. We may be unsure about multiple methods/measures or whether to obtain qualitative and/or quantitative data. We are hoping to make the results and implications of the SoTL project public somehow and somewhere… and so on.

In my own efforts to begin to transform these disparate and numerous thoughts in to a solid, organized, meaningful, and practical SoTL research project, I have found that filling in a SoTL design and conduct ‘worksheet’ has been very helpful.

Advice for New SoTL Researchers

Perhaps it’s due to the timing of a the academic year ending (and summer planning for fall projects is underway!), but I have been asked several times lately for advice to help new SoTL researchers get their first SoTL projects up and running. In response to these requests, I’ve constructed this list as a starting point for advice for new SoTL researchers.
