Last chance to join BJBS Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Community of Practice

As a learning and teaching scholarly activity, which is suitable for inclusion as an EDRS objective, Deb Clarke is offering to facilitate a BJBS Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SOTL) Community of Practice (CoP). The purpose of the group is to engage in the design and production of manuscripts for peer-reviewed learning and teaching journals. The HERDSA SOTL modules will be used to assist in the facilitation of this process. As the lead author of these modules, Deb will facilitate online meetings so you are closely supported in this process of designing a SOTL project for publication. Even if you are not “ready” to write a teaching and learning manuscript at this point in your career, these workshops (modules & meetings) will demonstrate the process and connect you with others who may share your teaching and learning scholarship interests.

What is involved?

The online facilitated meetings will be offered fortnightly commencing late-January and ending at the completion of Session 202130. Each online meeting will be of approx. 60-70 minutes duration and you will be required to complete learning activities from the HERDSA SoTL modules in preparation for online meetings each fortnight. As a group, we will negotiate the day and time of online meetings to allow all members to attend.

NB: You need to commit to all the meetings and complete the learning activities. Although we do realise that there may be times when you will be unavailable, so the online meetings will be recorded. At the completion of the modules you are encouraged to work on a manuscript for submission to a learning and teaching higher education journal (with support of course)

Who is eligible to submit an expression of interest?

Any staff who have not previously published in a learning and teaching journal. This group is for those who are new to scholarship.

How do I express my interest?

Email Warwick Baines (Sub Dean Learning and Teaching) and Associate Professor Deb Clarke (Faculty of Arts & Education) to express your interest by 16 November 2020. Your EOI should include your title, name, position in the Faculty/School, and why you are interested in joining the group. There will be a limit of 15 places in this group to ensure effective mentoring.
