The next step in the SoTL process with the Extend mOOC is to look at the benefits of SoTL and decide which might motivate me the most to engage in doing SoTL work. What I came up with is that it could lead to:
~ Increased reflection on teaching and learning among colleagues,
~ A stronger overall faculty that values teaching and student learning,
~ A renewed faculty excitement about teaching and greater self awareness
~ Better student outcomes
For me, my ultimate goal is to have the students walking away from my classes thinking about what they learned and seeing the benefit of their new knowledge to the work that they do or will do in the field of CYC. I also hope that students will look at this with a critical lens so that they can see if from different perspectives and relate it to their lives and work directly.
