Reading Groups

The LTC sponsors semester-long groups of faculty and staff who read current books about teaching and learning. Participants receive free copies of the books in exchange for attending designated sessions in the LTC where they share their insights on the texts with their group.

If you have suggestions for a new reading group or any questions/comments, please contact Faculty Development at
