In the January 2018 To Improve the Academy, Peter Felton and Nancy Chick pose the question “Is SoTL a Signature Pedagogy of Educational Development?” They outline the parallels between Felton’s five principles of good practice in SoTL with the “activities, practices, or habits of hand” of educational developers. The fourth of the principles is “conducted in partnership” wherein “faculty colleagues have the ‘right to set objectives and make decisions.’” This paper will explore the ways in which year-long faculty academies in teaching and SoTL offered at the University of North Georgia are structured to support faculty identity and continuous inquiry.
