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. 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.
