Summary: In this chapter the author discusses a SoTL project that grew out of her involvement with a national initiative to incorporate civic engagement into the teaching of science and mathematics. She called upon SoTL to provide assessment for the effectiveness of her course redesign. The chapter considers a common problem in doing SoTL, namely encountering difficulties in getting comparison data from control groups taught by other faculty members even when they are willing to assist. The author also describes the professional connections and benefits that accrued to her from employing SoTL to investigate student learning.
