Now that you have completed the sections of the Scholarship module, you can begin to share your ideas with your peers and colleagues!

To Do:

Part 1

  1. Write a reflective response. Your response to this activity should reflect your thinking from the beginning of the Scholarship module to the point now where you have planned a research project. In your response include the following key points;
    • Describe your research questions
    • Describe the prior research you will undertake to inform your research design
    • Explain your plan of action
    • Present a dissemination strategy.
  2. Visualize where the project will go. In your response, insert an open-licensed or original image that represents the direction you intend to go with this SoTL research. (See the Consider This activity from the Curator module for tips.)

Part 2

  1. Share your SoTL Research Plan in the SoTL Folder. 
    • If you worked on your project plan as a Google Doc, move a copy of it to the SoTL Research Plan Folder.
      • Visit the folder.
      • From the dropdown menu under the label SoTL Folder, select Add To My Drive. This places a reference to this folder in your own Google Drive.
      • Navigate in your own Drive to find your Research Plan document.
      • Right or control click on the name in the directory listing, and use the Move command to list your document in the SoTL Folder (Note: this does not remove your file, it places a reference for it inside the shared folder).
    • If you composed your plan as a Word document, visit the SoTL Folder. To share your file in this directory, drag and drop your file into the folder.
  2. Submit a shared link to or upload your plan in your response to this activity.
  3. After you make your submission, save the web address to your response (found in the green confirmation box) so you can use it later for your badge submission form.

This activity is part of the Sharing Your SoTL Plan section of the Scholar Module.

    by Jessica Joy (

    PART 1, Question 1 – The topic for my SoTL project originated from the results of the Empathy Map activity we conducted in the Technologist Module.

    My plan moving forward would be to be more conscious and intentional on the idea of SoTL. Considering each teaching experience as an inquiry process will help gather data to better support the teaching strategies to best promote learning.

      This module was a good exercise. I have some experience putting together research applications, but have always on some level, considered research separate from teaching. The results apply to teaching practice, but I hadn’t considered how I could treat my classroom as a source of inquiry. I like the idea.

      The Google document shared here is really a call to action on my part. I have now a vision and want to act upon it. My only concern at this point is the time it will take to get approvals from all the parties involved and locating the funding whilst doing all the initial setup more… »
