“An education that teaches you to understand something about the world has done only half of the assignment. The other half is to teach you to do something about making the world a better place. ”
~Johnnetta Cole, Director of the National Museum of African Art

Senior Scholar Learning Community (Deadline: Oct. 31)
The Senior Scholar Learning Community project provides an opportunity for members of the UW Oshkosh teaching community who have "Scholarship of Teaching and Learning" (SOTL) experience to engage collaboratively in a two-year project.

Learn More & Apply.

Congratulations! SOTL Pilot Projects Announced
The following members of the UWO teaching community were awarded SOTL pilot projects for the 2012-2013 academic year:

Dylan Chmura-Moore (Music) will investigate the impact of instrumental private lesson pedagogy workshops on students’ understanding of appropriate pedagogical techniques.

Jodi Eichler-Levine (Religious Studies) will explore how personal exploration via journaling, modeled on intimate stories that students read, lead to connections with the course material and with the intricacies, tensions and diversity of religious experiences.

Susan Rensing (History & Women’s Studies) will explore the use of student blogging to promote civic learning.

Tracey Starck (Reading Study Center) will investigate the impact of having students write structured book reviews on students’ critical analysis of nonfiction texts.
