CLT Event: Brainstorming your SoTL Project

Do you have a scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) project bubbling in the back of your mind but haven’t had someone to bounce ideas off of? Are you in the process of planning a SoTL project and haven’t had time to dedicate to organizing? Are you deep into data analysis and trying to figure out what it all means? If this sounds like something you’re currently experiencing, then this session might be for you!

Join us for a dedicated hour to brainstorm, collaborate, and develop your SoTL musings or projects.

What you can expect: Participants will be broken into small groups of 4-5 where each participant will have 3 minutes to “present” or share their idea, project, or data to their group and ask their group members one question or area they’d like feedback on. The group will have 7 minutes to discuss the presenter’s question and offer their own thoughts. This will happen 4-5 times, giving each member of the group an opportunity to share and discuss their work.

What you need to complete prior to coming: Each participant is expected to informally share their idea, project, or findings with their small group in a 3-minute elevator pitch, and then ask their group members a question about their pitch. Don’t stress about preparing something fancy or overly involved, your pitch can simply be a casual conversation you share with your members. Some people might come with a fully developed project, while others might still be in the process of discovering their idea – all stages are welcome!


Registration closes Wednesday, April 7 at 12:45 p.m. AST and is limited to 25 participants.  A link to the Microsoft Teams Meeting will be sent at least 1-hour prior to the event.​
