Interested in keeping up with pedagogical literature but don't have the time? Join the CTL for Pedagogical Journal Club. Each month we'll choose a different peer-reviewed journal article for discussion, which is designed to be useful even if you don't read the article. This month's article is "Active Learning Increases Student Performance in Science, Engineering, and Mathematics" (May 2014, Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences). Bring your lunch and we'll provide the dessert. A pdf of the article emailed to all registrants.

Bring your syllabus to our lunchtime meeting. Our challenge today is to have you describe the essence of one of your courses in 8 words or less. We'll talk through the value of the exercise and how other elements of "getting to the core" of your course can result in a new conceptualization of the course and its value to students. Refreshments will be served.

Are your student teams running smoothly, or do they sometimes look like this?
Reading for Learning
Do your students demonstrate "obedient purposelessness" as a reading practice? Reading every word. Thinking that “skipping around” in an article is cheating. Sticking to list making and highlighting as strategies for building comprehension? This week’s post offers “reading for learning” strategies for instructors ready to counter these practices.
