Ep. 033: An Introduction into the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

There’s no way to truly learn about teaching, about the effectiveness of various practices, or about how behaviors and attitudes of students shift as they learn, without a foundation of scholarship. Dr. Jennifer Friberg joins Jim to discuss her role as the Cross Endowed Chair in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, a position unique to Illinois State. Jen and Jim make the connection between scholarship, successful student learning, and the research-based professional development in teaching that links them. Find out how you can introduce SoTL scholarship into your own course as a way to enhance not only your discipline, but the profession of teaching as a whole.
