Reading Groups 

The Reading Groups organized by the Teaching and Learning Centre are cross-disciplinary gatherings, offering faculty, including term and sessional members, instructional staff, and librarians an opportunity to meet and discuss books and articles, on a variety of topics related to teaching and learning, in a relaxed and safe environment. 

Reading groups typically last six weeks (one 1-hour meeting per week) and are limited to 10 participants per group. There will be a reading group starting in early Feb. completely online with an e-book and Zoom gatherings, making it possible to participate from anywhere with an internet connection. Individuals may participate in only one in-person reading group per semester. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis. Reading groups are facilitated by the TLC coordinator, a faculty colleague or special guest. 

We hope that you’ll consider joining a reading group. It’s a great way to meet colleagues from across the campus and be inspired by their ideas and teaching experiences. You’ll find this semester’s options for list of reading group books on the Reading Group webpage, with a list of the dates for meetings and a link to vote for your preference and instructions on how to get your complimentary copy of the book. 

The Teaching and Learning Centre invites members of the campus community to suggest books as candidates for future reading groups. If you are interested in suggesting a book and/or facilitating the discussion, email tlc@upei.ca.
