Evaluating Teaching As A First Step To Sotl, Margy MacMillan, Karen Manarin, Maureen Mitchell 2010 Mount Royal University

Evaluating Teaching As A First Step To Sotl, Margy Macmillan, Karen Manarin, Maureen Mitchell

SoTL Commons Conference

A team of faculty researching the evaluation of teaching discovered many connections between evaluating teaching for tenure and promotion, and reflecting on teaching as the basis for SoTL projects. Similar questions are asked and similar methods of observation, documentation, and experimentation are involved in the development of oneself as a teacher/scholar and in the assessment of faculty for administrative purposes. The panelists will briefly describe the connections between formal evaluation processes and SOTL, and then open a discussion of how evaluative processes at participants' institutions may support SoTL activities by identifying areas that might benefit from scholarly, purposeful examination ...


Lessons Students Teach Us: Pursuing The Scholarship Of Teaching And Learning Through Text-Based Methods Of Inquiry, John Habel, Cynthia S. Deale 2010 Western Carolina University

Lessons Students Teach Us: Pursuing The Scholarship Of Teaching And Learning Through Text-Based Methods Of Inquiry, John Habel, Cynthia S. Deale

SoTL Commons Conference

Established academic disciplines have agreed upon methods of inquiry and standards of methodological rigor. Because SoTL has little history, is undertheorized, and is explicitly multidisciplinary, few such standards guide those who practice SoTL. Given SoTL's multidisciplinary nature, which can accommodate the concepts and sources of evidence of the arts and humanities, the natural sciences, and the social sciences, the goal of this session is to present practical guidance for using text-based methods of inquiry where student work products serve as both the texts under analysis and the evidence of learning. The presenters provide guidance for and stimulate conversation about ...


Strategies For Success In Interdisciplinary Team Teaching, Michael Furick, Jennie Stearns 2010 Georgia Gwinnett College

Strategies For Success In Interdisciplinary Team Teaching, Michael Furick, Jennie Stearns

SoTL Commons Conference

This paper examines the implementation difficulties and the student learning outcomes during a test of interdisciplinary teaching in one course. During two semesters, the course, titled “Communicating in the Business Environment,” was co-taught by a Business School faculty member and an English faculty member; the two subsequent semesters, the course was taught by a Business faculty member only. This presentation will examine pragmatic issues such as implementation of a joint teaching arrangement, counting of course load credit, the logistics of student evaluations, course design issues, and management of student expectations in having two teachers. Strategies for success in achieving a ...


Fidget Toys In The Classroom: Refocusing Attention, Donald Slater, Jean French 2010 Georgia Southern University

Fidget Toys In The Classroom: Refocusing Attention, Donald Slater, Jean French

SoTL Commons Conference

The poster summarizes and analyzes data collected from Fall 2008 through Fall 2009 and demonstrates the value of students'perspectives, values, and opinions using fidget toys in the classroom. Fidget toys were used to redirect student attention to in-class topic material and to create a productive, focused teaching and learning environment. Data was collected, using a twelve question Likert Rating Scale (LRS) survey, at the beginning and end of each semester. Students estimated the value of use of the fidget toys in redirecting their attention to in-class topic material.


Measuring Non-Cognitive Aspects In A Course, Aida Suraya 2010 Universiti Putra Malaysia

Measuring Non-Cognitive Aspects In A Course, Aida Suraya

SoTL Commons Conference

In 2006 the Malaysian Ministry of Higher Education proposed the review of university curriculum to ensure graduate competitiveness by embedding seven ‘must have' skills in the program and course learning outcomes. The skills include critical thinking and problem solving; communication; social skills and responsibility; management and entrepreneurship, and leadership. This session will highlight the initiatives conducted at Universiti Putra Malaysia in assessing attainment of soft skills. Assessment for each course is guided using rubrics whilst students' perception of their soft skills is measured using questionnaires. Both of these assessment methods have been tried out, however the results did not show ...


The Multilingual And Multicultural Classroom - Take One, Karen M. Lauridsen 2010 Aarhus University

The Multilingual And Multicultural Classroom - Take One, Karen M. Lauridsen

SoTL Commons Conference

The internationalization of Higher Education has increased in recent years and has resulted in a new situation for many colleges and universities: faculty as well as students have different first languages, they come from different cultural backgrounds and more often than not, they have grown up in different pedagogical / didactic traditions. While we celebrate diversity, there is no denying that this situation also creates challenges in the Multilingual and Multicultural Classroom. In a certain sense, we see a Bermuda Triangle, the three angles of which represent language, culture and pedagogical tradition, and within which we as educators need to navigate ...


Designing Graduate Teaching Assistants Training Programs, Bridget Melton, Yasar Bodur 2010 Georgia Southern University

Designing Graduate Teaching Assistants Training Programs, Bridget Melton, Yasar Bodur

SoTL Commons Conference

Often graduate teaching assistants (GTA) come into their programs with little or no pedagogical background and are asked to teach a variety of undergraduate classes. The key to helping the GTA transition from an undergraduate student or professional environmental into an instructional role is critical for the integrity of any academic program. The researchers will present findings from a current qualitative study on teaching efficacy and make suggestions of how program directors can help facilitate more efficient training program for college and university graduate teaching assistantship programs. The authors will present the material in a lecture and discussion format. The ...


Student Attitudes And Performance In An Introductory College Economics Class, Greg Brock 2010 Georgia Southern University

Student Attitudes And Performance In An Introductory College Economics Class, Greg Brock

SoTL Commons Conference

Students attitudes towards Economics as well as their knowledge of Economics before and after taking a college introductory Economics class is examined using standardized multiple choice economics questions. Prior knowledge of economics, having a bank account, and other biographical information are used to hold constant many factors influencing pre/post performance in an economics class such as instructor, book, content of the class. Results hope to shed light on how to flag potentially low grade students at the start of the semester to enable them to improve their performance in the introductory class.
