Building on the momentum from the 2023 Conference on Scholarly Teaching and SoTL in Linguistics (CoSTaSiL 23), we will be hosting a virtual Workshop on Scholarly Teaching and SoTL in Linguistics (WoSTaSiL 24) July 9–August 8, 2024. We would like to cordially invite you to be a part of this inaugural workshop and be one of the founding creators of the Teaching Resources and Innovations Library for Linguistics (TRILL), a peer-reviewed online pedagogical resource library.
If you are interested in participating, please complete this Google form by Thursday, May 16. The organizing committee will begin reviewing applications on Friday, May 17 and notify workshop participants on June 3.
What is TRILL? TRILL is being developed in partnership with the Linguistic Society of America and will be the first peer-reviewed venue for the sharing of high quality, evidence-based linguistics teaching artifacts. Example artifacts are, at their core, class activities and assignments, but they are presented and annotated in such a way as to be useful in a broader variety of pedagogical contexts, engage with core principles of the pedagogical and linguistic literature, and be interpretable so that they may be subject to peer review. Moreover, pedagogical artifacts are expected to engage substantively with considerations in the spirit of increasing equity, diversity, and inclusion in service of greater justice in teaching linguistics, as well as to make ethical use of data.
What is WoSTaSiL? During the 5-week workshop session, July 9–August 8, WoSTaSiL participants will develop an artifact and play an active role in piloting a peer review system for TRILL. Participants will be supported by the following activities:

  • Weekly asynchronous modules on the core principles of SoTL in Linguistics and the development of TRILL artifacts (to be completed prior to the weekly meetings)
  • Weekly 2-hour Zoom workshop sessions during Weeks 1, 2, 3, and 5
  • Individual consultations with organizers and/or peer review in Week 4
What is the commitment? Participants will be asked to choose one of three weekly meeting times during weeks 1, 2, 3, and 5 to create stable cohorts. However, if a single time does not work for all four weeks, this should not discourage participants from applying.
  • Tuesdays (July 9, 16, 23, August 6): 11am–1pm ET / 8–10am PT
  • Wednesdays (July 10, 17, 24, August 7): 1–3pm ET / 10am–noon PT 
  • Thursdays (July 11, 18, 25, August 8): 4–6pm ET / 1–3pm PT
