Next SoTL grant winners at the UG!

The second round of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL) grant program has concluded with three winning projects for the UG. We would like to extend our congratulations to the winners and wish them the best of luck in implementing their projects.

Awarded projects

The following projects of September 2023 will receive a grant: 

"Changing the guessing correction in Multiple-Choice Questions" by Dr Steffen Eriksen of the Faculty of Economics and Business

Changing the guessing correction in Multiple-Choice Questions

This SoTL project aims to conduct a Randomized Controlled Trial (RCT) to show the benefit of applying a different guessing correction for Multiple Choice Questions at the Faculty of Economics and Business. A guessing correction which discourages gambling, better differentiates students, and is more transparent.

"Teaching and Flourishing" by Dr Marjon Fokkens-Bruinsma of the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences

Teaching and Flourishing

Resilience is an essential factor that helps pre-service teachers deal with their challenges. We developed a series of workshops that address strategies to enhance resilience and well-being. This SOTL project examines how the workshops have helped our pre-service teachers develop their resilience and well-being.

"Oral exams in teacher education" by Dr Deniz Haydar of the Faculty of Behavioural and Social Sciences

Oral exams in teacher education

How can we implement an oral examination, instead of a written report, as one of the final assessments in our teacher education program? We aim to investigate examiner and student experiences regarding the practical implementation, learning outcomes, validity, reliability and fairness of oral examinations compared to written exams. 

Further SoTL grant opportunities

Last month, the NRO published the call for their SoTL 2023 grant, themed "Learning from teaching". Through the SoTL grant, the NRO provides an accessible opportunity for educators interested in applying concepts from educational research and scientific literature to enhance their teaching methods. The available budget for each application is at least €20,000 and at most €25,000. The deadline for submitting letters of intent is December 14, 2023, before 14:00 CET.
