AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program

 

 

The AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program is a Faculty Learning Community (Cox, 2004) focused on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) is inquiry by faculty into questions about their teaching and their students’ learning to better understand the successes and failures in both teaching and learning and reveal students’ understandings and misunderstandings of mathematics. The program itself is a professional development opportunity for the Fellows and is expected to propagate professional development for the broader AMATYC community through the outcomes of the Fellows’ projects.

 

The AMATYC Project SLOPE Research Fellows Program supports six AMATYC members (Fellows) as they conduct a SoTL project at their home institution with the support of a community of peers and mentors within AMATYC. Fellows meet virtually through online collaboration platforms and video conferencing, and in person at a summer workshop on SoTL, and at the 2019 and 2020 AMATYC Conferences. The program is designed around five identified phases of the development of a Faculty Learning Community and SoTL project. The phases are (1) community building, introduction to SoTL, and reflection on teaching; (2) development of SoTL Projects; (3) project implementation and evidence collection; (4) data analysis; (5) presentation of outcomes.
