Now we move into the phase where you will outline a research plan for an SoTL project in your area of interest.

You will be doing your work in a document that will be used for the remaining activities in this module, and eventually shared in a SoTL Research Plan Folder with the ones done by previous participants.

If you want to work in Google Docs, you can make a copy of the SoTL Research Plan template that is saved in your own account. When the copy is made, edit the file name to include your name. Or if you prefer to edit in another format, you can view the document now and use the File -> Download menu to save it as a MS Word document.

  • Examine each of the practice resource links provided in the Considerations section and the SoTL Explorer.
  • Use your SoTL Research Plan (Google doc or other format) to further refine your thinking about an area of research interest and a potential framework you are considering.
  • Update your Research Plan to further refine your thinking about an area of research interest and a potential framework you are considering.
  • If you are using a Google Doc, click the Share button in the top right, then Get Sharable Link to find the web address for sharing your document as a response to this activity.
