Pedagogy Reading Groups
The CTE organizes occasional reading groups open to faculty and graduate students interested in delving into a particular author’s work or into a timely pedagogical text. Facilitated by CTE staff, these groups provide instructors the opportunity to connect across disciplines about a range of teaching topics.
Past participants have mentioned “the diversity of the group - in terms of field, experience, and class type” and the “free-form conversation” as some of the benefits of the program.
Fall 2017 Reading Group
Our fall 2017 reading group will discuss How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching. Open to faculty and graduate students, the book group will meet in the CTE from 12:00 - 1:00 on the following dates (lunch will be provided):
- October 4
- October 18
- November 1
- November 15
Meetings will be informal and are meant to provide an opportunity to share reactions, questions, and thoughts about how to implement the principles introduced in the book. Participants who can commit to attend all four meetings will receive a copy of the book. Please indicate your interest via this form by September 20.
Space is limited and we will choose participants based on availability, while also aiming to create a diverse group with regards to teaching experience and disciplinary background. You will be contacted regarding your participation by September 22.
The Center for Teaching Excellence is committed to providing equal access to its events and programs. Individuals with disabilities who anticipate needing accommodations or who have questions about physical access may contact email@example.com.
