Pedagogy Reading Groups

The CTE organizes occasional reading groups open to instructors interested in delving into a particular author’s work or into a timely pedagogical text. Meetings are informal and are meant to provide an opportunity to share reactions, questions, and thoughts about how to implement the principles introduced in the reading.

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.

'What Inclusive Instructors Do: Principles and Practices for Excellence in College Teaching' by Tracie Marcella Addy, Derek Dube, Khadijah A. Mitchell, and Mallory SoRelle. Forward by Buffy Longmire-Avital and Peter Felten.

Interested in reflecting on an example-rich, inclusive teaching framework in conversation with colleagues?  The CTE will be running two remote pedagogy reading groups on What Inclusive Instructors Do by Tracie Marcella Addy, Derek Dube, Khadijah A. Mitchell, and Mallory SoRelle this fall, one for faculty and one for grad students and postdocs. Join us to explore the terrain of inclusive pedagogical practice as participants share examples from their own teaching, identify and strategize around barriers they face to inclusive teaching, and meet like-minded colleagues from around the university.

The groups will meet for four one-hour sessions over the fall semester. Participants who can commit to attending all four meetings will receive a copy of the book. Registration for the fall reading groups is now closed.
