Leave a comment

Posted by Jennifer Friberg, Cross Endowed Chair in SoTL at Illinois State University and co-chair of ISSoTL’s Advocacy and Outreach Committee

What do you perceive SoTL’s grand challenges to be?

The Advocacy and Outreach Committee for the International Society for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (ISSoTL) is working to create a list of the Grand Challenges to SoTL. These teaching and learning challenges represent the wicked problems of teaching and learning that exist across institutions and disciplines. Solving these challenges should provide benefits to learners around the world.

Identification of Grand Challenges can promote greater concentration of research efforts and far-reaching collaborations, as well as increasing the likelihood of impact on policies and creation of new funding opportunities.

This survey will ask you for your ideas of what should be identified as a grand challenge for teaching and learning. You will also be asked two demographic questions. This survey is entirely voluntary and there is no penalty for not completing all or any specific questions. The entire survey will take approximately 5 minutes.
