Priorities:

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Scholars Grant is a collaborative effort between the Center for Excellence in Transformative Teaching & Learning (CETTL) and the Office of Research & Grants (ORG). This grant program is to be used to implement or evaluate an aspect of the Central Six. This grant program supports Transformative Learning by encouraging a continuum of research, creative, and scholarly activities in all disciplines.

Recipients (both Pl and co-Pl) of SoTL Grants will be required to be part of a two-semester SoTL Scholars Learning Community (SSLC). This SSLC will meet once every three weeks at a time agreed upon by all participants. The meetings will occur from August 2014-May 2015, beginning with an awards luncheon at the beginning of the academic year. If you receive a SoTL Grant you will have to commit to attending the SSLC. More details HERE.

CETTL will be available as a consulting resource (literature review, research methodology, resources, list of scholarly journals and professional conferences, etc.) to assist faculty with proposal development.  For additional information, including ideas about the instructional methodology, please contact Dr. Jeff King, Executive Director, CETTL, at 974-5544 or jking47@uco.edu or contact Dr. Jody Horn, Asst. Director, CETTL at 974-2543 or jhorn9@uco.edu.
