The Center for Teaching and Learning's book club offers an opportunity to meet with a diverse group of faculty, postdocs, and graduate students each semester to discuss two books that focus on issues related to teaching and learning in higher education. A lively and relaxed setting combined with light refreshments provides an ideal setting in which to share teaching experiences and to gather new teaching ideas.
