      CTLgrads Summer Book Club (for Graduate Students)

      Are you interested in the literature on teaching and learning and how to apply this scholarship to your teaching practice? Join the CTL for our CTLgrads Summer Book Club for graduate students and postdocs. Participants will be introduced to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and engage with the literature through group discussions and contributions to the journal club. Sessions will also focus on how instructors can use the literature of teaching and learning, to inform their own teaching practices. Participants are expected to have read the assigned chapters in order to contribute to and learn from the book club's discussions. A light lunch will be served. The CTLGrads Summer Book Club will meet starting on Thursday, June 13 and meet every other Thursday through beginning of August (6/13, 6/27, 7/11, and 7/25, 8/8) in 212 Butler Library. If you are away from campus and would like to join in on the conversation, please contact the facilitator, Chris Chen (, Center for Teaching and Learning, for information about attending remotely. For Summer 2019, we will be reading "The Decoding the Disciplines Paradigm: Seven Steps to Increased Student Learning" by David Pace. We will be reading roughly two chapters (30 pages) for each meeting with the following breakdown: Pages 1-31 (Intro & Chp 1) for 6/13, Pages 32-61 (Chp 2 & 3) for 6/27, Pages 62-93 (Chp 4 & 5) for 7/11, Pages 94-118 (Chp 6 & 7) for 7/25, and Pages 119-142 (Chp 8 & Epilogue) for 8/8.
