What is needed to do more & better SoTL? This question challenges institutions, teaching centres, and individuals. Informed by conversations with faculty, the institutional culture, exemplars elsewhere, and a year to wrestle with this question highlighted familiar refrains of needed funding and surprising appendices (especially in those faculty conversations) of “then I would need ____”. Always practical, the comments spoke to needs for information, guidance, and connections they had experienced in disciplinary research development; the “crucial element” of research process support (Hum, Amundsen & Emmioglu, 2015). Seeking to empower faculty to address identified needs of connection, mentorship, and information needed to meet the principles of Felten (2013) and other SoTL theorists, Clusters for Enhancing Learning and Teaching were launched. Come by this poster to learn about our Clusters and the guiding theories, and share in the conversation (leave a note!) about what is needed to do more and better SoTL!
