Resource of the Month

Instead of focusing on a particular journal article this month, November’s Resource of the Month is another online teaching and learning resource. The Scholarly Teacher Blog, which is associated with the International Teaching Learning Cooperate (ITLC), invites readers to “purposefully pause, think critically, reflect on your teaching and your students’ learning.” Recent posts have focused on topics like mid-semester formative reviews, connecting assessment to learning, and increasing classroom participation. ITLC is also affiliated with the Lilly Conferences on College Teaching and Learning. Check back next week to learn more about Belmont’s recent involvement with Lilly Conferences.

The purpose of the Resource of the Month is twofold:
1) To encourage the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) by providing examples of high-quality research.
2) To provide faculty with innovative ideas that promote effective pedagogy.
