CATL reading groups for Fall 2014
Already broadcast campuswide but repeated here for the record: The Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning is now forming Fall 2014 Reading Groups. The book chosen for discussion is Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching: A Guide for Faculty (2014) by Alison Cook-Sather, Catherine Bovill, and Peter Felten. Student-faculty partnerships is an innovation that is gaining traction on campuses across the country. There are few established models in this new endeavor, however, Engaging Students as Partners in Learning and Teaching: A Guide for Faculty offers administrators, faculty, and students both the theoretical grounding and practical guidelines needed to develop student-faculty partnerships that affirm and improve teaching and learning in higher education. Groups are open to all faculty and staff members. Books will be provided by CATL office.
Participants will choose from one of four discussion sessions:
• Wednesday, Dec. 3, 9:30-10:30 a.m.
• Thursday, Dec. 4, from 9 to 10 a.m.
• Friday, Dec. 5, from 1 to 2 p.m.
• Monday, Dec. 8, from 2-3 p.m.
If you would like to participate, send an e-mail to Ashely Damp, CATL Program Assistant at firstname.lastname@example.org to indicate your interest and to let her know which book group discussion(s) you would prefer to attend. (Yes, you may attend more than one.) Responses are required by next Monday (Sept. 29).
