The following message is being sent on behalf of the Office of Academic Affairs and the Center for Teaching, Learning and Academic Technology (CTLAT) Co-Coordinators Drs. Steve Buddington and Eartha Lee Johnson:
We are once again sponsoring a “Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Research Institute” funded through the Andrew Mellon Faculty Enhancement Grant. We propose to host this institute May 22 -24, 2013 on campus. It is a three (3) day institute to expose both our faculty and other local HBCUs to the following select objectives:
(1) Increase faculty interest in teaching and learning through SoTL and Faculty Learning Community principles
(2) Provide consultant support to faculty for investigating and utilizing new strategies in classroom research as well as
(3) Increase publication submission rates for participating institutions
We are requesting that you join us in this retreat that focuses on tips for successful publishing. The goal is to assist faculty in submitting a research project for publication before classes start in August. We are asking that you focus on research that you have already begun so that at the end of the institute you would be ready to submit to a referred journal. Faculty who submit successful proposals will receive a stipend of $500.00 once the article has been submitted for publication.
This institute proved to be a great opportunity for junior and senior faculty who needed the concentrated support to assist them in getting published. Dr. Kathy Burlew, University of Cincinnati, will once again be conducting the institute here at Dillard University.
We ask that you complete the attached application and return to Barbara Albert, firstname.lastname@example.org by April 29, 2013. Faculty members who have submitted an application for a mini-grant are required to attend the three (3) day research institute.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you there.
