One of the most important areas we can develop as professionals is competence in accessing and sharing knowledge.

Scholar Activity 5

Reflective practice is a key component of SoTL activity. Often, it is the reflections that we make on our work that can become the stimuli for research ideas. Being reflective can also aid in creating a thoughtful dissemination strategy for your work.

  • Have a good look at each of the SoTL research outputs from the Simon Fraser University Maths project on the previous page – especially the demonstrations of scholarship. Reflect on your own project planning and think ahead to how you might go about sharing your results.
  • When you have thought through how you could do this, update the last section of your SoTL research plan with a dissemination strategy, for making public the key findings of your research study.

Don’t forget that you can use the Discussion Forum to share ideas and ask for others’ thoughts and experiences.

As evidence of completion, please add a link or a copy of your developing plan and any reflections to your Extend NZ blog or portfolio.
