Mistakes to avoid when doing SoTL
Transcript of Mistakes to avoid when doing SoTL
All research involving human subjects
must be approved by IRB
. "Exempt" does not mean you don't have to go through the approval process.
Research should be grounded in and informed by the literature. What is the current state of research? How does this study extend or compliment previous research?
Your data - whether they be survey results, interview transcripts, student work, etc - is only as good as the instruments you use.
Perceptions are valuable, as long as what you are interested in is perceptions. Perceptions are not evidence of learning.
Avoid the scattershot approach to data collection. Know your question(s) before you begin to collect data, rather than looking at data to find question.
Reading a poorly edited manuscript is frustrating for reviewers. Do not send in a rough draft; make sure your submission is complete, polished, and error-free.
If you are using methods that are unfamiliar to you, consider collaborations. Use the expertise of others to increase the rigor of your SoTL research.
Know the journal and audience you want to target ahead of time - make sure your article is a good fit and within their scope. Format according to their guidelines.
Be sure to give readers enough background and context into your particular situation for them to understand your research.
Situate the discussion of your results in the literature; how does this research confirm, enhance, or refute current understandings? Now what?
