CFA: Pre-conference Workshop on SoTL
Pre-conference Workshop on
the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning in Philosophy:
From Anecdote to Evidence
Call for Applications
In association with the 22nd International Workshop-Conference on Teaching Philosophy, in July 2018, the American Association of Philosophy Teachers is conducting a pre-conference workshop on the scholarship of teaching and learning in philosophy and invites applications to participate.
As teachers and (for some) as researchers in philosophy pedagogy, we regularly make judgments about how and to what extent our various pedagogical choices did, or did not, work. All too often, we do so merely based on our intuitive sense of how things went and on end-of-semester student evaluations of the course. While these two forms of feedback are important for learning about our pedagogical choices, they are often too broad and too amorphous to be much help in determining if one specific pedagogical innovation was successful or not. How, then, should we make better judgments? This one-day workshop, intended for teachers and researchers in philosophy pedagogy, explores a variety of approaches to gathering evidence about the effectiveness of philosophy pedagogies, examining their strengths, weaknesses and where and when each is appropriate.
