Minnesota State is seeking members for a two-year cohort within the Minnesota State REFLECT project. The project brings together faculty from across disciplines, institutions, and experience to participate in a Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) faculty learning community. Minnesota State REFLECT scholars will be supported as they develop, implement, and present research results at a conference or in a journal. Research studies should focus on pedagogical practices that enhance the teaching and student experience.
Members should expect to meet virtually (with possible face-to-face meetings in the future) 24 hours per year, and each faculty will receive a 1 RCE per year (2 RCE total) and $1,500 for conference attendance each of the two years ($3,000 total) from their institution. All faculty who are interested in improving the teaching and learning experience are eligible and encouraged to apply.
Participants will meet for a half day retreat in August and September, then monthly (September – November and February – April) to continue progress, share ideas, collaborate, and obtain consultation and support.
This year, Minnesota State REFLECT cohorts will be asked to reflect on their teaching, develop SoTL questions, and explore their teaching and students’ learning using a lens of equity. Additionally, applicants may apply as part of a partnership or triad to expand the impact of the work.
Interested faculty members must apply by Friday, April 16, 2021.
