Course description:

This workshop provides an opportunity to explore how to enhance professional teaching and learning support practice through evaluation, scholarly enquiry and small-scale research projects. Discussion will focus on how to identify a relevant topic (research question) and how to choose the right research tools to gather your data. Participants will be encouraged to share their findings with a wider audience, within their professional domain or beyond.

Learning outcomes:

  • Understand and apply appropriate methodological approaches to explore teaching and learning
  • Develop an appropriate research question
  • Disseminate scholarly activity findings on discipline pedagogy

Pre-course work:
