CETL's seventh annual three-day writing retreat for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is open to all SU faculty (tenured, tenure-track, non-tenure-track, adjunct, and visiting) who are teaching or on sabbatical during 2012–13. It provides space, time, and collegial support for faculty working toward publishing a writing project focused on teaching and learning in higher education (HE).
This writing may take one of three forms:
- Peer-reviewed journal article
- Peer-reviewed book chapter
- Peer-reviewed conference proceedings
The common denominator is that your scholarly writing at the retreat focuses on the practice of HE teaching and learning in your discipline, rather than on the "content" of your discipline.
If you have questions about whether your study fits the scope of the retreat, please contact us by April 2 for informal feedback.
Structured peer groups will aid participants in setting goals and encouraging progress over the three days, and professional consultants from CETL will be available to offer feedback and further guidance. The majority of the time is unstructured so that participants can devote their creative energies to their academic writing. Up to ten applications will be selected by a panel of faculty reviewers. To help you produce a more focused proposal, we have posted our evaluation criteria HERE.
