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 2019 Reading Group
This summer, the CTE is hosting one reading group opportunity, which is open to all instructors at Boston College. In this reading group, focused on Chávez and Longerbeam’s Teaching Across Cultural Strengths: A Guide to Balancing Integrated and Individuated Cultural Frameworks in College Teaching, we will discuss the challenges and opportunities of teaching students with a wide range of cultural identities while being mindful of our own cultural identities as instructors. The group will meet 3-4 times between June 10 - July 26.
