Summer Institute

We are pleased to announce that applications are now open for this year’s Summer Institute. This year’s Summer Institute will focus on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) and will take place over three days: Monday, May 12th, Wednesday, May 14th, and Friday, May 16th. Participants will learn how to conduct a SoTL research project as well as hear from experienced SoTL researchers. Participants will begin work on their SoTL projects and receive feedback from their fellow participants as well as session leaders. Participants will attend (virtually or in-person) support sessions throughout the 2014-15 academic year with the expectation of presenting their research at the 2015 Teaching and Learning Symposium.

To apply for the Summer Institute, please visit: Applications are due by 5:00pm on Friday, April 18th. Acceptance notification will be sent the week of April 21st.

If you wish to participate, please be sure to hold 9:00-5:00pm on your calendars each day of the Institute. Priority will be given to those applicants who can attend all sessions. Pending availability of state funds, participants will receive a mini-grant that can be used to support their research projects. If you have questions, please contact Erin Robinson (, 513-2421) or Jonathan Holloway (, 515-7018).

The Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) Summer Institute is designed to provide an opportunity for NC State instructors to work collaboratively with peers to develop successful research projects focusing on teaching and learning.
