This interactive workshop focuses on supporting engineering educators to augment their promotion and tenure objectives with Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) opportunities. Engineering educators will receive the information and structure they need to implement innovative curriculum interventions aimed at integrating the entrepreneurial mindset.
SOTL is a powerful tool for disseminating knowledge that describes innovative curriculum interventions, and lessons learned from implementing these interventions. Equipped with SOTL tools and know-how, faculty can simultaneously elevate student learning and satisfaction while advancing their professional and academic career goals.
With the transdisciplinary nature of entrepreneurship in mind, this training will use the context of entrepreneurially minded learning to showcase innovative curriculum interventions. Participants will learn how to develop and implement curriculum interventions via SOTL, and critically reflect on and share lessons learned.
Participants will receive:
(1) strategies for developing and implementing teaching and learning interventions integrating the entrepreneurial mindset,
(2) a framework for conducting SOTL,
(3) a list of SOTL-friendly dissemination outlets including conferences and journals,
(4) a how-to guide for creating virtual writing groups supporting publication and dissemination of SOTL, and
(5) information about applying for a SOTL-focused paid professional development opportunity.
