SoTL Events

CTSI facilitates SoTL through hosting a series of workshop focused on a range of SoTL topics, led by CTSI staff and U of T faculty with expertise in research on teaching topics. These workshops offer a peer-supported environment where faculty of all SoTL experience levels may attend and share their research ideas and gain knowledge to further enhance their research on teaching. These sessions are a valuable way to connect with other SoTL researchers and practitioners to further teaching effectiveness.

All events are held at the Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation, Blackburn Room, Robarts Library, 4th Floor

Full details and registration will be available soon!

SoTL Fall 2019 & Winter 2020 Workshops: CTSI Blackburn Room: OPEN TO ALL INSTRUCTORS

Research Ethics: Conducting Scholarly Enquiry on Your Teaching

Facilitator: Cora McCloy, PhD, Faculty Liaison Coordinator, SoTL, CTSI

The Centre for Teaching Support & Innovation (CTSI) at the University of Toronto is dedicated to the advancement of the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning (SoTL) at our institution. This session focuses on research ethics processes and planning at U of T and is of value to instructors seeking information and guidance on the following core topics:

  • Classrooms as sites to conduct scholarly enquiry on your teaching
  • Is our inquiry research or reflective practice?
  • How do we protect students as participants?
  • How do we negotiate our dual roles as Instructor-Researcher?
  • Overview of My Research Human Protocols (MRHP)

This session will also emphasize that the ethics process itself presents an opportunity to kick-start one’s research and to develop a clear research protocol that will serve for all research stages moving forward. Instructors of varying SoTL experience levels are welcome. The last 30 minutes of the session will be devoted to Q & A. Those who are available only for the first hour are welcome to attend.
