Making Learning Visible (Scholarship of Teaching and Learning or SoTL)
SoTL is scholarly inquiry into student learning which advances the practice of teaching by making research findings public and open to critique and evaluation. The intent is to create a community of “scholarly teachers” who add to the body of knowledge about teaching and learning as well as benefiting from the SoTL research of others.
Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) Course Inquiry Project
How do you know if you are an effective teacher? The Making Learning Visible Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Course Inquiry Project offers faculty the opportunity to produce evidence of teaching effectiveness that goes beyond IDEA survey results. Findings can be used as evidence of scholarly teaching in promotion and tenure reviews. Each spring, CAFE seeks applications for the program for the next academic year.
The fall semester of the Portfolio group takes faculty through the process of creating a classroom inquiry plan. Faculty will implement their projects and assess learning in the spring semester and place course portfolios documenting the inquiry on a CAFE-maintained website to share with colleagues at UAA and beyond.
