We now have to talk about how what we do facilitates student learning. </li></ul>kennesaw.edu/cetl New Faculty Success Workshop
  9. 9. Scholarly Teaching (Richlin, 2006) kennesaw.edu/cetl New Faculty Success Workshop
  10. 10. Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (Richlin, 2006) kennesaw.edu/cetl New Faculty Success Workshop
  11. 11. An Example of Scholarly Teaching <ul><li>An English teacher attends a session at a teaching conference and learns about the use of pop quizzes to encourage students to read the material before a planned class discussion. She implements the technique the next semester and then analyzes the quiz scores and other student data to measure its effectiveness. Based on her results she decides whether to continue to use the technique or try something else. The use of her results and what she has learned impacts primarily her courses. </li></ul>kennesaw.edu/cetl New Faculty Success Workshop
  12. 12. An Example of SoTL <ul><li>“ We tested a procedure designed to enhance psychology students’ learning from educational videos. Introductory psychology students (N=127) watched a video about social psychology during a regular class section. Students in some sections of the course watched the video with no special instructions; students in other sections answered 8 guiding questions in writing while watching the video. After viewing the video, students took a test containing video-related and textbook-related questions. As predicted, students who received guiding questions scored significantly higher on the video-related questions than did those in the control group; there was no effect of experimental condition on the students’ performance on the textbook-related questions.” </li></ul>kennesaw.edu/cetl New Faculty Success Workshop
  13. 13. An Example of SoTL <ul><li>Lawson, Bodle, Houlette, & Haubner (2006). Guiding Questions Enhance Student Learning from Educational Videos.
