CTL Teaching and Learning Reading Group (Fall)

submitted by greenj@augsburg.edu

Join us this fall as we read and discuss the book Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning by James M. Lang. Each chapter begins with illustrative anecdotes, overviews the relevant research on student learning (in lay language), describes easy-to-implement teaching strategies, ideas, and activities to enhance student learning, and ends with a handy bullet list summary (great for skimming). This is a no-guilt book group. You are welcome at a session no matter how much or little of the reading you were able to complete.

Reading Group Meetings:
Thursday, Sept. 16, 12:00 – 1:30 PM Introduction & Ch. 1 Knowledge
Thursday, Oct 7, 12:00 – 1:30 PM Ch. 2, 3 Knowledge
Thursday, Nov 4, 12:00 – 1:30 PM Ch. 4-6 Understanding
Thursday, Dec 2, 12:00 – 1:30 PM Ch. 7-9 Inspiration
Tuesday, Dec 14, 12:00 – 1:30 PM Celebration of teaching & learning

We are planning to meet in person, but welcome Zoom participants as well.

We look forward to conversations on teaching and learning the book inspires.
