The Professional Reading Series promotes the idea that effective, student-centered teaching and learning requires a commitment not only to improving and assessing one’s daily practice but, also, to dedicating time and energy to reading and reflecting upon pedagogical best practices and emerging educational technologies, and remaining conversant with the latest scholarship of teaching and learning research.
If faculty or staff are interested in facilitating a school, department, or learning community reading series under the sponsorship of the CEITL&DE, please contact the center’s director, Diana Cheshire, Ph.D. (email@example.com).
