SoTL Talk is a new initiative showcasing research conducted by SUNY Buffalo State faculty members in a dynamic, intimate environment. Please join us for the inaugural talk on Thursday, March 20, from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. in the Flexible Theatre of the Donald Savage Building. Come and listen. Come and share. Come and learn. This is "research worth knowing!" Sponsored by the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Office, the event will feature three SoTL fellows: Cyndi Burnett, assistant professor of creative studies; Hibajene Shandomo, associate professor of elementary education and reading; and Jevon Hunter, assistant professor of elementary education and reading. Faculty, students, and community members are invited to attend. This is a Year of the Teacher event.
