Assessment is generally not a favorite subject for many teachers, and this is likely due to a perceived tension between the goals they wish to accomplish as educators and the methods of assessments prescribed by accrediting agencies. With even President Obama calling for improvements in assessing education, this paper seeks to develop an…

Kelley, Bruce – InSight: A Journal of Scholarly Teaching, 2008
Faculty face significant challenges when moving into scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) for the first time.

Lightner, Robin; Benander, Ruth; Kramer, Eugene F. – InSight: A Journal of Scholarly Teaching, 2008
Transfer of learning is using previous knowledge in novel contexts. While this is a basic assumption of the educational process, students may not always perceive all the options for using what they have learned in different, novel situations. Within the framework of transfer of learning, this study outlines an attitudinal survey concerning faculty…
