Darci Thoune

Darci Thoune, English, co-authored the chapter "SoTL and Gendered Division of Labor on our Campuses: A Case for More Equity and Change in Professional Values" in Academic Labor Beyond the College Classroom: Working for Our Values published on Dec. 18, 2019 by Routledge. This chapter, co-authored with Valerie Barske (UW-Stevens Point), Katia Levintova (UW-Green Bay), Valeria Murrenus Pilmaier (UW-Green Bay, Sheboygan Campus), argues that SoTL touches on many work-related issues that we face as faculty in higher education. Because it is not just traditional scholarship, we contend that SoTL carries expectations of improved teaching/learning, which can lead to increased attention on labor practices that are often unrecognized, unpaid, and unrewarded.
