Due to demand, registration for the faculty reading community is now closed. Should you still wish to participate, please contact Meg Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Join colleagues and Center for Teaching and Learning staff for sustained cross-disciplinary conversation on critical topics in teaching and learning!
The Faculty Reading Community (FRC) discussion this fall will focus on chapters from the newly revised and updated Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning, which draws on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines and translates these findings into productive, evidence-based “micro” teaching practices that can energize and enhance your teaching, but require little additional preparation and grading.
Faculty participants who commit to attending at least four sessions will receive a copy of the book courtesy of the CTL. Executive summaries of each chapter will be provided prior to each meeting as well.
Meetings will be over Zoom, from noon-1pm on the following Thursdays:
Sept 23: Introduction & Chapter 1: Predicting
Oct 7: Chapter 2: Retrieving and Chapter 3: Interleaving
Oct 21: Chapter 4: Connecting and Chapter 5: Practicing
Nov 4: Chapter 6: Explaining and Chapter 7: Belonging
Nov 18: Chapter 8: Motivating and Chapter 9: Learning
