Workshop: SoTL: "Spring Break-Cooperative Learning"
Course ID - CTD0931a
|Audience||Full Time Faculty|
|Length of Workshop:||26 hours|
* Approved CT&D Workshop for Faculty Professional Development hours.
The SoTL "Spring Break" will take place over three and one-half days of Spring Break. This seminar will explicitly focus on classroom level teaching and learning research designed to enhance student learning through implementation of Cooperative Learning strategies. Since the focus will be on classroom action research as a form of scholarly teaching, faculty will design an approach to improve student learning in a targeted area and plan to assess the results of their teaching design.
Participants will produce a focused, classroom level research design proposal that contains: a clear, researchable question review of relevant literature; identified sample; research methods; data analysis method, and a timeline for implementation and communication. Research design proposals will be peer reviewed by participants using the six standards of scholarship (Glassick, C.E., Huber, M.T., Maeroff, G.I., 1997 Scholarship Assessed: Evaluation of the Professoriate. Jossey-Bass).
The finalized research design proposal is due to CT&D within two weeks of the end of the Seminar. Research design proposals must be submitted by the participants for IRB review prior to their implementation
Faculty will be compensated $500.00 upon successful completion of the project.
As a result of successful completion of the
workshop, participants will be able to:
