SoTL Toolkit: Primer on Quantitative and Qualitative Inquiry
March 9 @ 1:00 PM - 2:00 PMFree
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) guides us as instructors to engage in continuous review, revision, and renewal of our teaching practices to support student learning. With SoTL, we ask questions like “What will happen after I implement this revision policy?”; “Does this assessment format work better than others?”, and “How much more or how much less discussion occurred after this strategy?”
But how do we answer questions about our teaching practices? Specifically, how can we make sense of our approach in the underlying assumptions, parts, and processes to how we answer questions about our teaching practices?
We can turn to principles and concepts from quantitative methods and qualitative methods to help us design and implement SoTL-based inquiry.
This webinar reviews quantitative and qualitative methods in their underlying assumptions, major characteristics, and how assumptions and characteristics translate to specific methods of inquiry. The webinar will task participants to reflect, analyze, and discuss prompts individually and as part of a group.
