Coastal faculty members to present learning research

Seven Coastal Carolina University faculty members will present "Symposium on the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning" on Friday, Jan. 13 at 3:30 p.m. in the University Hall Rotunda. The event is free and open to the public.

Each of the faculty presenters will discuss research they have conducted during the past year on various topics relating to educating students.

Faculty presenting research findings at the symposium are:

- Robin Gilbert and Sara Brallier, both assistant professors of psychology/sociology; and Linda Palm, professor of psychology/sociology, "A Comparison of Learning Outcomes in Web-based and Traditional Lecture Format General Psychology and Introductory Sociology Courses"

- Sharon L. Gilman, assistant professor of biology, "Does Technology Help Students Understand Biology in a Lab Setting?"

- Yoav Wachsman, assistant professor of accounting, finance and economics, "Motivating and Teaching by Modeling an Economy"

All the presenters received Scholarships of Teaching and Learning (SOTL) grants as part of a program developed through Coastal's Office of the Provost designed to encourage faculty members to do research on how to best teach students so that they will learn more.

The grant program is administered through Coastal's Center for Effective Teaching and Learning, which supports faculty members in their work as teachers.
