Presentations about your SoTL research

Presentations are an opportunity to showcase ongoing or completed SoTL research and to discuss significant findings. To encourage critical dialogue among conference participants, presenters should plan for approximately 15 minutes of presentation and 10 minutes for questions and discussion.

Your proposal should include an abstract addressing the following questions (no more than 250 words total):

  • What is the problem, question, or hypothesis that your research addresses?
  • How does your project relate to other work that has been done?
  • How did you study the problem or question? What type(s) of data did you collect? How did you analyze it?
  • Where are you in the process? What have you found so far?

Roundtable discussions about your SoTL research

A roundtable discussion about your SoTL research is an opportunity to discuss your work in a less formal format than a presentation. As the leader of a roundtable discussion, you should be prepared to facilitate dialogue with interested colleagues. You should also prepare a visual (such as a handout, digital image/graphic, or poster – no PowerPoint presentations) as a starting point for the discussion.

Your proposal should include an abstract addressing the following questions (no more than 250 words total):

  • Where are you in the process? What have you found so far?
  • What type of visual aid will you use to stimulate discussion among participants? This should be an image or handout, not a powerpoint presentation.
  • What questions will you pose to engage participants in discussion?

Roundtable discussions about topics related to SoTL

A roundtable discussion about topics related to SoTL is an opportunity to discuss important questions related to SoTL research (e.g., study design, IRB, publishing your SoTL work, how SoTL fits into faculty professional objectives). As the leader of a roundtable discussion, you should be prepared to facilitate dialogue with interested colleagues. You should also prepare a visual (such as a handout, digital image/graphic, or poster – no PowerPoint presentations) as a starting point for the discussion.

Your proposal should include an abstract addressing the following questions (no more than 250 words total):

  • What is the topic of the proposed roundtable discussion?
  • What is your experience related to this topic?
  • Why is this topic important to discuss at BMCC? How does it relate to teaching, learning, SoTL methodology, or faculty professional growth?
  • What type of visual aid will you use to stimulate discussion among participants? This should be an image or handout, not a powerpoint presentation.
  • What questions will you pose to engage participants in discussion?
