- Have you ever thought about how your discipline-specific research skills could be applied to doing research on your own teaching?
- Are you interested in using a deliberate, systematic approach to improving your students’ learning?
- Do you want to share insights about teaching and learning with colleagues across disciplines, and build on each other’s ideas?
Join us at the 1st Annual BMCC Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Forum, an opportunity for BMCC faculty to showcase their existing SoTL work, and for faculty new to classroom research to design their own SoTL project. Our theme this year is Teaching as Research (TAR), a subset of SoTL that focuses primarily on one’s own classroom practices and improving one’s own students’ learning.
November 10 – SoTL Forum: Teaching as Research
A showcase of SoTL projects underway/completed by BMCC faculty members, including faculty from the 2015 cohort of the BMCC Teaching Academy.
November 17 – Teaching as Research Workshop
A day-long, hands-on workshop on conducting classroom-based research, led by Kimberly Williams, an educational consultant and teaching support specialist at Cornell University.
