At the Center, educational consultants with expertise in conducting classroom research are available to meet with individual instructors and collaborative teams working on teaching and learning projects of all kinds. The Center for Innovative Teaching and Learning also has a lending library of theoretical and practical literature on the scholarship of teaching and learning and can help scholars obtain human subjects approval for their studies.
A variety of local resources support IU's Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Program including:
Teaching and Learning Gateway
Find all things related to teaching and learning on the Bloomington campus, including workshops, new stories, and showcases.
Selected Library Resources
Indiana University Libraries maintains resources and books on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and supports an electronic reserve site for pertinent documents, and has designated a librarian to be the primary SOTL contact, assisting faculty members in thorough research reviews.
Protection of Human Subjects
SOTL scholars work closely with the Committee for the Protection of Human Subjects to facilitate ethical classroom research and to educate SOTL faculty on these issues and on the procedures for obtaining necessary approvals.
Office of the Registrar
A simple request made by an instructor to the Office of the Registrar can provide researchers with timely demographic data about their students, including grade-point-average, enrollment, and retention data. This can be done in a way that protects students' privacy. Send your request for specific demographic data to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Teaching and Learning Research Guide for STEM & SBE
This Library Research Guide for faculty was created at UW-Madison to provide access to a broad range of resources, including: Suggested education article databases, journals that publish teaching research by discipline, recommended book, and online resources (professional organizations, instructional materials repositories, assessment tools). The site was designed to support current and future faculty when they are doing Teaching-As-Research (SOTL-like) studies.
