FACET and the Mack Center’s SoTL 101 webpage is now live. Marcia Dixson received a Bender FACET Fellowship in spring of 2015 to complete the project. In her proposal, she described the webpage as “a one-stop shop for those wanting to learn more about various methods ranging from qualitative (thematic analysis, focus groups, participant observation) to quantitative (pseudo-experimental, content analysis/coding, surveys).” The page breaks down the life of a SoTL project into eight steps from its conception as an idea to its finality as a publication.
Dixson has been committed to SoTL research for some time now with notable contributions, including a MACK Fellowship, publications in JoSoTL and JALN, participation on the editorial board for JoTLT, and two top five papers at National Communication Association conference in the division of Scholarship of Teaching and Learning. She has taught a graduate level social science based research methods course for over 15 years taken not only by Communication graduate students but also students from Liberal Studies, Sociology, and Organizational Leadership and Supervision.Visit SoTL 101
