360 degrees of SoTL at Uppsala University

Geir Gunnlaugssonand Svante Axelsson, Uppsala University, Sweden

Teachers at Uppsala University completed 360 original small-scale pedagogic projects over an 18-month period. These projects are designed, executed and presented within the framework of the University ́s academic teacher training course. The course is mandatory for teachers, runs over five weeks and is offered twelve times per year. Course participants are encouraged to transfer and translate course topics into the home institution environment and explore issues and questions that they deem as challenging to themselves in their roles as teachers in higher education, as well as to colleagues and students.The project topics selected raise a number of important questions regarding such training programs; on scholarly methodology, translation of knowledge into the home environment and perhaps most significantly the impact that such exploratory project work has on the participants and their own “everyday” environment and the longevity of the effect of exploring teaching and learning in a scholarly fashion. Such questions are the basis of an on-going research project at Uppsala University. The 360 project reports generated during the selected period are classified in order to identify trends, challenges and special focus areas. These findings are followed up by surveys and individual interviews with course participants to establish the level of retention and impact that the project work has had, both on the individual participant and in the home institute environment. What is received and retained by the course participants, and how are the results transferred into actual teaching and learning environments within the universities various departments? The authors of this study argue that such project work are powerful, yet under-utilized, tools to enhance a SoTL-aware approach to teaching and learning as well as a motivational factor for the new teaching staff to engage in research and development in a reflective, scholarly fashion
