Generating Ideas for SoTL Projects
Ann Miller, Interim Director, Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning

If you’re new to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning—whether you’ve got a background in other research areas, or this is an early foray into research and publication for you—this session is designed to give you practical tips about launching research from the idea stage. We’ll talk about assessing your interests, identifying journals, getting acquainted with the field, testing your ideas and arguments, and principles for setting up a writing plan.

Where to Publish: Finding and Evaluating Journals to Publish Your Research
Terri Gotschall, Scholarly Communications Librarian, College of Medicine and Sarah Norris, Scholarly Communications Librarian, University Libraries

How do you decide which journals are the best fit for your research? This workshop will discuss a variety of topics to help you navigate the publishing process including publishing goals and criteria to consider when planning where to submit your work for publication. It will explore how to evaluate a journal to ensure that the journal you are considering is one of quality and rigor within your discipline. We will also discuss open access publishing and how to avoid predatory publishers.

Designing a Plan for Writing
Julie Donnelly, Post-doctoral Scholar, Faculty Center for Teaching and Learning

We will conclude our SoTL Day morning by designing a plan for writing something we are either already working on or plan to start from scratch. We’ll set goals, anticipate potential obstacles, and identify times in our schedules that we can use for writing.

Please register by noon on the day before the event: main campus, UCF Downtown.
