Hostos Teaching Institute Sharing SoTL Best Practices within the Hostos Classroom 11/30/2017
During this 90 minute-session, faculty will share their unique pedagogical approach and what they have learned about their techniques after implementing Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) projects in the classroom. All of these presenters have participated in SoTL sessions during the last academic year where they developed authentic research questions rooted in their pedagogical practices. This cohort of faculty will share their research questions and how they have documented what the class intervention has ultimately informed them about best ways to devise their pedagogy and if students benefit from this approach.
