We invite all faculty and graduate students to attend the second annual Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Symposium. The goal of the symposium is to showcase the SoTL work being conducted by Saint Louis University faculty and graduate students, and to promote a community of SoTL practitioners.
The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) involves researching questions about teaching activities and student learning by formally studying the teaching and learning activities of one’s course; answering those questions by assessing student learning and effectiveness of teaching strategies; and publicly sharing results of this inquiry in a setting that invites peer review, such as a publication or conference presentation.

Brown Bag: The Apprenticeship Workshop Model for PhD Dissertation Direction
Oct. 28, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., Des Peres 214
Most graduates of PhD programs speak in subdued tones when reflecting back on the days of planning, researching, and writing their dissertations. The majority recall feelings of isolation and anxiety that accompanied the experience. Yet most faculty who teach in graduate programs tend to replicate that experience for their students writing their own dissertations.
You are invited to attend this brown bag discussion at which Kenneth Parker, currently Steber Professor in Theological Studies, will discuss the pedagogical approach to dissertation direction he has created, the “Apprenticeship Workshop Model for PhD Dissertation Direction,” and the results of a formal study he has conducted on the positive impact of this model.
