Graduate students selected for this full‐year (12 month) program will work with an LBC faculty member on a new or existing disciplinary‐based education research (DBER), scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL), or action research project. We envision DBER/SoTL/action research topics broadly, including developing and assessing various curricular interventions, assessing student learning and the factors that affect such learning, and evaluating the success of classroom innovations. For additional information on these different areas of research, please see http://www.unl.edu/dber/action-research-sotl-dber. Each SUTL Fellow will work closely with their LBC faculty mentor to contribute to a DBER/SoTL/action research project, and will be encouraged and supported to disseminate project results via peer reviewed journals, conferences, and pedagogy‐related websites.
The call for future applications comes out in spring each year.
Drs. Ryan Sweeder and Mark Largent, two of the 2016-2017 LBC SUTL Mentors
