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.

Spring 2020 Pedagogy Reading Group


All BC instructors are invited to join an experiential pedagogy reading group on The Slow Professor by Maggie Berg and Barbara K. Seeber. The program aspires to explore and embody pedagogies of self-care and connection in dialogue with the text. The 75-minute sessions will include embodied, contemplative practices, periods of individual reflection, and opportunities for discussion. Join Catherine Warner (History) and Kim Humphrey (CTE) in the cultivation of an alternative academic space where participants are invited to practice new patterns of presence and connection with the aim of integrating those habits into their pedagogies and teaching practice. Participants who can commit to attending all four meetings will receive a copy of the book. Space is limited so please indicate your interest by January 17th.
