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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Summer 2020 Pedagogy Reading Group
All BC instructors were invited to join our summer Pedagogy Reading Group discussing The Inner Work of Racial Justice by Rhonda Magee, our 2020 Excellence in Teaching Day keynote speaker. The group met remotely five times from June through July on dates determined by participant availability. Meetings were informal and meant to provide an opportunity for communal reflection on Magee’s invitation for all of us to cultivate our capacity to live and teach more justly through mindfulness practice. Participants who committed to attending all five meetings received a copy of the book through the mail.
