CELT Sponsors SoTL Projects in WOVE
CELT is currently accepting applications for a year-long scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) institute for faculty and staff. This year's request is targeting two areas of interest:
- projects focusing on student learning outcomes embedded within learning communities
- projects focusing on the implementation of ISUComm principles in upper division courses.
ISUComm fosters sustained attention to communication learning throughout the curriculum, helping students develop their abilities in WOVE (written, oral, visual, and electronic communication) through analysis, practice, and reflection. At the upper level, its goal is to integrate WOVE and the basic rhetorical concepts of context, substance, organization, style, and delivery into communication activities within the disciplines. As disciplines assess the communication needs of their majors, devise learning experiences to meet those needs, and assess the effectiveness of those experiences, there are many opportunities for scholarship of teaching and learning, whether related to new WOVE pedagogies, learning communities, course linkages, capstone courses, or new course development.
The institute will kick off in May and then run through the 2009–2010 academic year. Details and application materials may be requested from Jennifer Leptien (firstname.lastname@example.org). Questions about the program may be sent to Steve Freeman (email@example.com) after March 1.
