Creating Equitable Learning Opportunities: Exploring the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) with an Equity Mindset
What does it mean to be a transformative educator in the context of higher education? How can we integrate our commitment to creating equitable learning outcomes for students with the SoTL in ways that improve practice and extend learning – our own, as well as our colleagues?
During this three day Summer Institute, Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) expert Richard Gale will guide faculty members through the process of designing yearlong SoTL studies informed by an understanding of race and class.
Faculty at the institute will:
- Reflect on their classroom practice using Milner’s “Diversity and Opportunity Gap Framework”;
- Consider bell hooks’ argument for practicing “engaged pedagogy” in the context of their current teaching opportunities;
- Engage in individual and collaborative reflective practice rooted in an understanding of race and class;
- Develop a driving to guide their individual or shared SoTL work;
- Explore relevant literature to begin building a scholarly context for their question;
- Design an appropriate method for pursuing their question in the 17-18 academic year, and draft a work plan;
- Connect via a common software platform (sponsored by SBCTC) designed to facilitate collaboration and connection throughout the 17-18 academic year.
