About the seminar:
This seminar will present the outcomes of two related pieces of research. The first is an evaluation of a Faculty Learning Community established to support the understanding of SoTL for a cohort of staff at a research-intensive university. Building on from this, the second study is an analysis of a deliberately engineered attempt to encourage and foster collaboration by pairing colleagues from the University of Glasgow with matched colleagues from the University of Wisconsin.
