Having documented your work, it is your scholarly responsibility to share your findings about effective ways to help students learn better in your discipline, your institution, your community. Creating the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) flows directly from Scholarly Teaching. This session will describe how to turn your teaching strategies and results into presentations and publications.

Dr. Richlin is Professor and Chair of the Department of Medical Education at WMU Homer Stryker M.D. School of Medicine, and has been actively involved in professional education and leadership development for over three decades. She served as the director of the Office of Faculty Development at the Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science in Watts, Los Angeles, California, and previously was director of the Claremont Graduate University Preparing Future Faculty and Learning Communities Program. She continues to serve as executive director of both the Journal on Excellence in College Teaching and the Learning Communities Journal, and president of the International Alliance of Teacher Scholars. In addition to teaching, in several disciplines, Dr. Richlin wrote the best-selling book, Blueprint for Learning: Constructing Courses to Facilitate, Assess, and Document Learning.
