The Society for the Teaching of Psychology announces the annual STP SoTL Workshop, now with two delivery options. Consistent with our Mission Statement and the Statement on Addressing Systemic Racism and Inequity in STP, we encourage applications from colleagues who are from underrepresented groups and have diverse backgrounds and experiences.
SoTL is defined as methodologically rigorous scholarly work conducted to enhance teaching and advance learning, ideally resulting in peer-reviewed products made public. We invite applications from faculty and graduate students who would like to accomplish developing and/or writing a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) project.
The Workshop will allow small groups of faculty/graduate student members to receive guidance on SoTL research from an experienced mentor and consult with both statistical and publication experts. Each participant will be placed with a mentor and a team of 3-4 peers. The mentor will support participants through the research process, which may include discussing ideas or analyzing, outlining, and writing a final product. The ultimate goal is to contribute to the research on teaching and learning. Participants gain support in how to design a study, analyze learning data, and/or writing a complete manuscript. Mentors work with their teams virtually starting this Summer to prepare either for the Workshop during the ACT Conference or for the following week during the ACT Conference's virtual Zoom programming.
Regardless of modality, during the ACT SoTL Workshop, team members convene across two synchronous sessions (at the beginning and end of ACT) to make progress toward submitting their own SoTL manuscripts while also providing time for participants to attend ACT events.
Mentees complete an online application describing where they are in the research process and whether they will attend ACT in person or virtually. Based on this information, mentees are placed in teams of 3-4 people with one mentor to help them through the research/publication process.
If you are interested in being considered for the SoTL Workshop, please complete the application online using the link below before May 31. To apply, click here (requires login).
