Campus-wide book discussion on `What the Best College Teachers Do` by Ken Bain (president of the Best Teachers Institute) is on 24-April from 3:30-5:00 in the Tucker Theater. All books have been assigned, but please feel free to join the discussion. There will be food! We will continue to meet to discuss the book and best teaching practices in the fall (fall dates TBA).

From the Chronicle, Feb. 2013: "It remains for me the single most inspiring and thought-provoking work in the field. Bain's deep analysis of the teaching attitudes and practices of a small cohort of outstanding teachers, buttressed by research from the learning sciences and narrated in lively prose, provides multiple models for college educators to reflect upon, discuss, and emulate. Nine years after its initial publication, it continues to stimulate my own continuing meditations on teaching. (James M. Lang Chronicle of Higher Education 2013-02-19)"

Sponsored by Prof. Susan Grover, the Charles Center and the NTEFA.
