Scholarship of Teaching and Learning –
SoTL Scholars Program Request for Proposals
Proposals are now being accepted for ISU faculty participation in the CELT SoTL Scholars Program. The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning involves faculty framing and systematically investigating questions related to student learning, with the goal of improving their own classroom as well as advancing practice beyond it through peer-reviewed presentations and publications.
Participants will conduct their classroom-based research project during the 2014/15 academic year. We anticipate funding up to 8 SoTL Scholars/Scholar teams at $1,250.
Proposals are due Monday, April 7, 2014.
