I had some challenges with access to the shared folder to share my SoTL research planning. Once I gain access to the shared folder with my google account I will add my document. I have included the word document in the activity submission for reference.



  • Describe your research questions

How can the peer review process better support the learning of students?

  • Describe the prior research you will undertake to inform your research design

I will need to complete literature/research findings (which could be different from literature) to inform my understanding of what SoTL has completed and how I would build on the current research.

  • Explain your plan of action

After reflecting on the potential ethical concerns related to the research proposal, I feel it will be best to use a questionnaire to support the research. I would first provide questions related to the current practice; How would it be best modified? I would then theme the suggestions and make changes to the process.  I would provide the modified process, and peer assessment to the same class (different assignment). I would ask the students engaged in the initial questionnaire to complete a follow-up questionnaire in response to the impacts of the change process.

  • Present a dissemination strategy.

I really want to focus my efforts on ensuring that there are other tools available for people to engage in my research other than the research paper. I plan to use publicly available videos as a tool to support others in accessing and engaging in my findings.


I feel this picture represents the potential reach of our findings with other research methods.
