The Research Associate Program Pilot is an initiative within AMATYC seeking to encourage two-year college mathematics faculty in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). Dewar & Bennett (2015) define SoTL as classroom research that is: (1) undertaken with the goal to improve teaching practice in a way that supports student learning; (2) grounded upon findings from previous research; (3) presented in a form that others can build on; and (4) public and open to peer-review.

The focus of the Research Associate Program Pilot is the engagement of AMATYC Research Associates in SoTL projects beginning with the development of research questions and including the design of the studies, implementation of the study, analysis of data and sharing of outcomes. The pilot program will be designed using a cohort model in which research associates collaborate on SoTL projects and research mentors work to support associates as they navigate the demands of conducting research in their classrooms. The program pilot will include a SoTL workshop led by Jacqueline Dewar, a leader of the SoTL movement within college mathematics.

Six AMATYC Research Associates and two AMATYC Research Mentors will participate in the pilot program. It is anticipated that the Research Associate Program Pilot application period will occur in Fall 2018 and the pilot will begin in Spring 2019 and conclude in May 2020.
