Last week you should have received an email inviting you to join us for our May 8, 2018 Teaching Center workshop sessions highlighting Belmont faculty Great Ideas for Teaching (G.I.F.T.) and Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) work. You will receive additional information regarding the opportunity to register for these sessions and another May workshop session in an email coming around the middle of April.
For now we invite your G.I.F.T. and SoTL proposals:
Great Ideas for Teaching (G.I.F.T.) —
propose a 10-minute roundtable informal presentation to be included in the Faculty G.I.F.T. session on Tuesday, May 8 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. The proposal should be associated with a classroom-tested activity, including activities for online or hybrid courses, to be shared with novice and veteran Belmont faculty members. A proposal may include a previously given or planned presentation (poster or otherwise), a recently published, upcoming or submitted manuscript idea.
Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) —
propose a 15-minute presentation to be included in the Faculty SoTL session on Tuesday, May 8 from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Co-presenters are welcome, if appropriate for your proposal. The proposal can be associated with any of your scholarly work that is connected to SoTL, including a previously given or planned presentation (poster or otherwise), a recently published, upcoming or submitted manuscript, or a budding idea that you hope to develop into a SoTL project. SoTL work at all stages in the research process and communication levels are welcome.
Please Note: Completed manuscripts/papers are neither required nor expected for either session.
Please complete and submit the appropriate proposal form by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, April 16. Send the completed proposal to TeachingCenter@belmont.edu. In addition to the G.I.F.T. and SoTL proposal forms, an example proposal of each was provided as an attachment in the email sent out last week. A handout offering a general explanation of SoTL was also attached in case that is helpful for your understanding of SoTL. Proposals will be reviewed by Teaching Center Advisory Board (TCAB) members. Faculty who submit proposals will be informed whether their proposal is accepted for presentation by Friday, April 27. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
