International Collaborative Writing Groups - Applications Due 13 March 2015

As part of the ISSOTL 2015 Conference hosted in Melbourne Australia, colleagues are invited to apply to participate in a year long international collaborative writing group.

There will be eight groups, each of which will prepare and write an article during 2015-16 on a pre-selected topic about the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) for submission for publication. Each group will have seven members chaired by a facilitator familiar with the chosen topic. Ideally each group will include one student member.

The groups will work at a distance to prepare a 2000 word outline for online discussion running up to an ISSoTL pre-Conference workshop. They will meet in Melbourne for the two and half days preceding the start of the main conference (Sunday, Monday and Tuesday 25-27 October 2015) during which they will spend time preparing their draft paper within their group and in discussion with participants of other groups.

There will also be some social activities as part of the workshop. Following the workshop the groups will have five to six months to complete and send in their papers for submission to the Society’s international SOTL journal, Teaching and Learning InquiryIt is planned to have a session within the main conference for participants to share their experiences of the initiative with other conference delegates. learn more}
