Introduction to the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning: Designing a SoTL Plan
Aim: The aim of the workshop is to engage new scholars in a series of planning activities resulting in a SoTL project plan.

Audience: The pre-conference workshop is intended for new scholars who have not published in a peer reviewed learning and teaching in higher education journal. New scholars can be higher degree research students or experienced academics who have discipline-only publications and are keen to engage in Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL).

Facilitators: The workshop will be facilitated by experienced SoTL writers who are members of the HERDSA Executive, and/or Associate Editors/Reviewers of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education Journals.

Prior to the pre-conference workshop: Participants will complete a range of learning activities from the HERDSA Online SoTL Modules and meet online to discuss their teaching experience and interests.

During the pre-conference workshop: Participants will engage in an array of facilitated activities to assist them to network with other like-minded academics, and design a plan for a SoTL investigation.

After the pre-conference workshop: Participants will engage in facilitated online meetings to share their project progress, and gain feedback from the HERDSA facilitator/s.

Learning Outcomes: Participants will have the opportunity to:
• expand their professional academic network;
• raise their awareness of HERDSA professional activities;
• build capacity in scholarship of teaching and learning; and
• produce a SoTL plan to inform an investigation of a learning and teaching challenge of professional relevance.
