Supporting Collaborative SoTL Learning Communities: Faculty Voices
Session Time and Location
Faculty Learning Communities (FLC) encouraging SoTL research are offered at many teaching centers, but limited research examines faculty perspectives on SoTL collaboration and perceived effectiveness of FLCs. Using a mixed-methods research design our team investigated facilitators and barriers of SoTL engagement and collaboration and the impact of collaborative SoTL research on faculty teaching, scholarship, and community involvement. The study provides insights for enhancing institutional SoTL programming changes and understanding faculty motivations for engaging in SoTL. Presenters will discuss differentiated support for faculty engagement with SoTL and ideas for assessing and addressing SoTL needs with session attendees.
