This year's Routes to Dissemination Fair will give you a chance to hear from School and College colleagues who have already carried out L&T scholarship, to feed into University policy, and to explore the most suitable places for you to publish.

Coffee will be available mid-morning, and lunch and a chance to network will follow the final presentation.

You might be interested to watch Vice-Principal for Learning & Teaching, Prof. Moira Fischbacher-Smith, discuss the importance and the relevance of the Scholarship of Teaching & Learning here at Glasgow (other videos mentioned within are available on the HR webpages).

Session details

Lightning talk pitches and speed-networking

In part I, a variety of University of Glasgow colleagues will deliver lightning presentations on what their scholarship projects involved, with a focus on the transferable lessons they learned in the process. These will help you decide who you'd like to approach for more detail in part II.

In part II, you'll have a chance to follow up in small group discussions with the speakers whose experiences you'd like to learn from most. A coffee break follows this section, so you won't need to worry about being cut short.

Learning Analytics Policy - presentation and discussion

The University is developing a Learning Analytics Policy, which will provide a framework for the use of different types of data in support of student learning. Professor Wendy Anderson and Dr Georgina Wardle, members of the Learning Analytics Policy workstream, are currently consulting on a draft version of the policy. They will present current plans and open a discussion, so this will be your chance to ask questions and feed into the creation of the final policy and associated guidance.

A scholarship checklist

Dr Nathalie Sheridan will then pull together an overview of what a well-constructed scholarship project might look like, sources of advice and training for individual stages, and where to access sources of funding. 

Information on publication options

The College Librarians will be on hand throughout the day to advise on pitching to the most appropriate journals for publishing scholarship within your subject area.

Dr Anne Tierney (member of the editorial team for the Journal of Perspectives in Applied Academic Practice (JPAAP), and organiser of both the Improving University Teaching (IUT) Conference and the 8th Biennial Threshold Concepts Conference) will once again be around to talk to you about the submission and publication process for these excellent SoTL dissemination outlets.

Finally, we will have a display of information on some of the most popular SoTL journals along with typical example of the types of article they each publish.
