If you have completed SoTL projects and/or or representations of the project and results (publication citations, web urls…), please consider sending or submitting the appropriate materials to publicize and share your SoTL work locally. Below are some opportunities to do so (and the links to additional information).
Gauisus is the ISU ‘published’, peer-reviewed, on-line, multi-media SoTL publication. SoTL on the teaching and learning of Illinois State University students represented as research papers, notes, essays, posters, websites, videos, etc. are all considered for publication. Currently, Gauisus is published each spring with submissions due in late fall. Details on submitting your work are available on the Call for Submissions.
The SoTL at ISU Newsletter is published every September and January. We welcome 250-500 word summaries of your SoTL work about the teaching and learning of Illinois State University students for inclusion in the newsletter. Summaries should include the purpose, method, results, implications, and---if appropriate---applications made and relevance to other disciplines of the SoTL project. Submissions of such summaries are due August 1 or December 1 as a word file to SoTL@IllinoisState.edu. In your email, please indicate the summary is for the newsletter.
Authors in Gauisus are profiled in the ‘highlight box’ on our SoTL home page. Other active SoTL researchers at ISU can also be profiled here. Send your name, department, photo, and a 2-3 sentence summary of your SoTL work (with a url link if you wish) to SoTL@IllinoisState.edu for consideration. In your email, please indicate the material is for a possible webpage profile.
If you have made your past (2000 or later) or current SoTL work public beyond the local level (through published work or a video or a web site...), please share citations to that work. These will be added to the list of SoTL publications by Illinois State University faculty, staff, or students on the SoTL website.
We are seeking submissions (500-750 words) for publication on ISU’s SoTL blog: The SoTL Advocate. Blog posts can describe faculty/student SoTL projects, review or summarize recent SoTL research articles, discuss advances in disciplinary SoTL, etc. Contact Jen Friberg (jfribe@IllinoisState.edu) for more information!
Every January a full day symposium on teaching and learning at Illinois State University is organized by the ISU Center for Teaching, Learning, and Technology. Papers and posters on scholarly teaching and SoTL are presented. Lunch and a keynote presentation are also part of the event. Please submit your SoTL work to the symposium to share with your ISU colleagues.
