Tips for Conducting a SoTL Literature Review

Friday, February 16 2018
@ 1:00 PM- 2:00 PM
Navigating literature in the field of education can be tricky. Educational terms shift quickly (e.g., “standards-based assessment” instead of “proficiency-based assessment”) and are often used interchangeably to describe similar phenomena. Without knowledge of common educational terminology, it can be difficult to find what you are looking for in the literature. This session will provide tips and strategies for navigating educational literature in preparation for a SoTL study. The session will be led by Dr. Dan DeSanto, Library Assistant Professor, who will provide an introduction to common educational research databases (e.g., ERIC) and tools to facilitate searching. Participants will be afforded time to search these databases for resources related to their topics of interest and identify appropriate terminology with the assistance of experts in the field.
