SCN Group Leaders

Kristen Frenzel and Leah Roesch will lead the Neuroscience Cases Group. They plan to recruit interested neuroscientists and to develop a chapter for our on-line book, Teaching NeuroscienceWith Cases: From the Beginner to the Practiced. They plan to publish and develop cases for several different levels of practice.

Clyde “Kipp” Herreid and Pat Marsteller have agreed to lead the How to Teach with Cases Group.   They will recruit members of the steering committee to act as a host to select questions  once a week that visitors to the site can respond to.  Occasionally they will post a new case study for everyone to review and make comments on. They invite all SCN members and all the applicants for SOTL and Case Fellows to join.  Some areas of focus include:

  • Writing cases
  • Integrating quantitative skills
  • Writing assessments
  • Using technology with cases
  • Finding cases
  • Adapting cases to different students and settings
  • Using cases in the large lecture class

Deborah Allen, Margaret Waterman, and Pat Marsteller are the group leaders for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Fellows.  They will mentor the SOTL Scholars and lead discussions in the SOTL group.  They invite all members to contribute to the group to help develop a list of readings and materials including:

  • SOTL/DBER for individual teachers/classes
  • Model designs
  • Samples of projects
  • IRB

Group Leaders are still needed for the following groups:

1. Assessment – Research Continuum

  • Assessing learning, cases
    • Help developing assessments
    • Have sample assessments
  • Formal educational research for professional researchers
  • Find collaborators with practitioners

2. Specific Disciplinary Content for the following groups:

  • Evolutionary biology
  • Global cases
  • Lab cases
  • Quantitative cases
  • Cases that address diverse students

Group Leaders are responsible for coordinating their group. Groups must maintain activity and post at least monthly.  They can recruit new members. Each group would produce a minimum of one of the following each year of funding:

  • White paper, e.g. Assessing Learning in PBL or Case Classrooms
  • On-line feature based on the groups work
  • A chapter for the on-line book, e.g. How to Facilitate Cases
  • Videos e.g. Cases in Action
  • Webinars

Group leaders would receive $500 plus travel to one of the SCN meetings.  This year group leaders will present at the conference at the University of Delaware June 21-30, 2014.

Apply to be a Group Leader by March 15th!
