Call for Scholars’ Proposals

2011 International Institute for SoTL Scholars and Mentors

Transformational Learning
Engaging Education in Global World

June 1-4
Omaha, Neb.

You are invited to join engaging and reflective conversations on “Transformational Learning” as part of the larger 2011 International Institute for SoTL Scholars and Mentors (formerly the CASTL Summer Institute) by submitting your best “work-in-progress.”
The heart of the institute is a process of mentoring work-in-progress, modeled by the Carnegie Foundation. No more than 28 proposals will be accepted for mentoring/presentation, but all forms of SoTL research and disciplinary foci are welcome. Scholars’ proposals need not address the institute theme; rather, they must answer five questions regarding their SoTL project.

For complete application details: All proposals must be received by Feb. 3.

Fostering transformational learning is about teaching for change, and SoTL serves as a useful lens by which to examine taken-for-granted assumptions and aptly frame an exploration of educational practices capable of transforming traditional, returning, and non-traditional students’ learning experiences, both inside and outside the traditional classrooms and laboratories. The Institute and this year’s theme invite a variety of disciplinary and methodological studies. Consider sharing your work as a scholar. For more information, contact
