Faculty Reading Groups
The Office of Faculty Development seeks to encourage interdisciplinary conversations about teaching and the academic life. To this end, we have acquired two sets of books for the 2012-2013 school year that we trust will provide starting points for provocative and enriching discussions: "The courage to teach: Exploring the inner landscape of a teacher’s life" (Parker Palmer) in the fall semester & "Academically adrift: Limited learning on college campuses" (Richard Arum and Josipa Roksa) during Spring 2013.
Please contact us at (217) 581-7051 or email email@example.com to sign up for reading groups. The Faculty Development office will coordinate a time and location for interested faculty.
We welcome suggestions of titles for future semesters.
