Fall 2021 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, on a variety of topics related to teaching and learning, in a relaxed and safe environment.
Reading groups typically last six weeks (one 2-hour meeting every second week) and are limited to 10 participants. There will be two reading groups this fall, one in-person and one 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. Participants in an in-person reading group receive a complimentary physical copy of the book. 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.
Please note: To ensure productive discussion, participants should be able to commit to all scheduled meetings; please review your calendar to confirm you can attend before signing up.
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 email@example.com.
