Maurer, T.W. (2023). Translating SoTL findings to students to effect learning in family science: A knowledge mobilization approach. National Council on Family Relations Report, 68(1), F12-F13. Retrieved from

This piece in NCFR Report extends my work on knowledge mobilization and translating the findings of SoTL research to students in ways they can use to enhance their learning.  I show how I incorporate the framework in James Lang’s (2016) Small Teaching in one of my Family Science courses in a way that doesn’t just use those high impact techniques, but explains to students why they work and how students can adapt them to their own studying and learning.  It is an approach that can be adopted with minimal effort to existing learning activities in just about any course.

The article below was published with his undergraduate researcher Emily Cabay: 

Maurer, T.W., & Cabay, E. (2023).  Challenges of shaping student study strategies for success: Replication and extension. Teaching and Learning Inquiry, 11.

This article in Teaching and Learning Inquiry reports on a project done in collaboration with a former undergraduate student in the course (Emily Cabay, Psychology major) and represents the culmination of two years’ worth of work.  It is a replication/improvement of some of my earlier work that was originally scheduled to be completed during the 2019-2020 academic year, but the pandemic ruined that data collection and postponed starting over until the fall of 2021.  This has been a long time coming, but it was worth the wait:  we found out some really interesting things about how to help students adopt more effective study strategies!  It’s open access, so anyone can read it!  We also have a brief blog post about it, written almost entirely by my student co-author, on the ISSOTL website:
