Engaging in Ethical SoTL

Practicing the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) by conducting research in our classroom comes with a range of ethical considerations. These include those typical to research with human participants, but some additional and unique considerations apply when our own students are our research participants. Knowing how to appropriately apply an ethical lens to SoTL not only protects the learner, but also works to enhance the quality of your SoTL project. 

Join us for this workshop where we will cover: 

  • What to expect during the Research Ethics Board (REB) application process, 
  • Important ethical considerations during the SoTL Lifecycle, and 
  • Tips to help you with conducting ethical SoTL.
