Registration is now open for the graduate student and postdoc Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Seminar. SoTL is is a field of study dedicated to systematic and reflective inquiry of the effects of one’s teaching practices on student learning. SoTL incorporates knowledge from educational and cognitive psychology research, and it leads to the dissemination of new knowledge. Through biweekly in-person meetings and participating in online discussion boards during the Spring 2020 semester, participants will gain exposure to SoTL research from varied disciplines, design a SoTL project, and engage in conversation and build relationships with other seminar attendees. Learn more about the seminar and see descriptions of projects designed by past participants here.
The SoTL Seminar is open to graduate students and postdocs at Washington University who have attended at least 3 advanced-level workshops through The Teaching Center. Interested graduate students and postdocs are highly encouraged to discuss their interest with a member of the Teaching Center staff to ensure that the SoTL seminar will be the best fit for their needs.
The SoTL Seminar will meet in-person from 12:00—12:50pm in January Hall, Room 110 on the Danforth Campus on the following dates. Participants must be able to make 7 of the 8 meetings.
