One of the challenges with getting started in SoTL work is knowing where to begin. Often solutions to teaching challenges or new research ideas are flushed out during informal conversations with colleagues. In this brown bag session, we will informally discuss teaching and learning ideas and moments that may lend themselves to a SoTL project. We will also explore ways to turn those moments into a SoTL research question. Feel free to bring your lunch along to this discussion.
