USG SoTL Fellows Orientation
The 2017-2018 cohort of USG SoTL Fellows met together for the first time during the USG Teaching & Learning Conference in Athens, Georgia on April 5-7, 2017. During the three-day orientation, they began to discuss and refine their project ideas and designs, examined AAC&U’s LEAP initiative with regards to their projects, and participated in a conversation with UGA’s Office of Research. They also attended presentations by Rebecca Rose (the USG SoTL Fellows embedded librarian) and by the first cohort of fellows. This was followed by time with the first cohort to ask questions and discuss their experience in the program.
This second cohort, which has a focus on the LEAP initiative, will continue to meet over the course of the year as they design, develop, and implement their SoTL projects.
