The CTSI-SoTL team is excited to continue the monthly Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Journal Club Series through Fall-Winter 2022-23. The goal of this series is to provide an opportunity for our community to explore the SoTL literature in a group setting, both to find practical applications to implement in the classroom and to inform our own SoTL projects.

Articles in this series are selected by instructors within our SoTL community, and these papers are a starting point to explore and examine one research study. Facilitators provide discussion prompts to guide and engage us in conversations that will resonate across all disciplines and SoTL experience levels.   

Franco Taverna, Associate Professor, Teaching Stream, Human Biology Program, Faculty of Arts & Science

Discussion Prompts:

  1. What had you expected would be the students’ perceptions of their experience of this course and why?
  2. What limitations beyond those identified by the authors – might be found with the researchers’ methodological approaches and how might these be effectively addressed?
  3. In addition to the students’ pre- and post-CBEL reflections, what other assessment tools or modalities might be used to provide data in support of the authors’ resource justification and quality improvement goals? 

CTSI Staff:
Cora McCloy, PhD, Faculty Liaison Coordinator, SoTL
Kyle Turner, MSc, Faculty Liaison, Teaching and Learning
