Teaching and Learning Center to host book club

Submitted by Tanya Gonzalez

The Teaching and Learning Center invites you to participate in the 2023 book club by reading "The New College Classroom" by Cathy N. Davidson and Christina Katopodis, Harvard UP 2022. The book aims to assist instructors as they "create an environment that is truly conducive to learning."

The book club will read a short selection each month and meet from 4-5 p.m. at Union Station by JP's on the following dates:

  • Friday, March 3 — Chapter 1: "Why change now?" and Chapter 2: "Structuring active learning."
  • Friday, April 7 — Chapter 3: "Teaching is mentoring."
  • Friday, May 5 — Chapter 4: "Before the first class."

An asynchronous discussion board will also be available on Canvas for those who are unable to attend the Friday in-person sessions. Please register online to connect to the book club. The first five individuals who register will receive a free book.

We look forward to discussing this book with you in 2023.
