Workshop Overview
 Scholarly inquiry into student learning involves a systematic set of inquiry processes into student learning. Normally conducted within one’s own class, it is evidence-based, peer reviewed and publicly shared. Through structured facilitation and peer discussion, you will learn about finding appropriate literature, writing a researchable question, strategies for data collection and analysis, ethical requirements, and ways to disseminate your inquiry results.

This full day workshop is geared to help you design a scholarly inquiry/resarch project into teaching and learning. The workshop is hands-on and will assist you in transforming an idea for a project into a study that you can conduct at your institution. A systems overview of the elements of a scholarly inquiry project will begin the workshop. We will then identify where the common challenges are in progressing through the phases of conducting a scholarly inquiry project.

Prior research experience is not a prerequisite, nor is any experience with educational or pedagogical investigation. This workshop is designed to help faculty build new expertise, making use of their own background and experience brought from the classroom.
