The growing number of faculty members interested in sharing the results of their work in the classroom represent the movement known as the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL). This work is based on methodologies that offer some evidence about the impact of the intervention on student learning experiences and outcomes. Recent examples of the University’s contributions to this area of scholarship include Kelly Hogan’s (Biology) study on active learning and closing achievement gaps or Julee Waldrop’s (Nursing) contributions to a new book on flipping the college classroom.

The CFE offers faculty the opportunity to join others and discuss their SoTL projects. Professor Steve Buziniski from the Department of Pychology and Neuroscience hosts a monthly Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Faculty Learning Community. To join the Faculty Learning Community, please contact Steve Buzinski.
