Butler Library, 535 W. 114 St., New York, NY 10027 Room 212
Are you interested in the research on teaching and learning and how to apply this scholarship to your teaching practice? Join the CTL for our CTLGrads Summer Journal Club for graduate students and postdocs. Participants will be introduced to the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and engage with the literature through group discussions and contributions to the journal club. Sessions will also focus on how instructors can use SoTL, along with the education literature in our field and beyond, to inform their own teaching practices. Readings will be posted beforehand, and participants are expected to have read the papers in order to contribute to and learn from the journal club's discussions. A light lunch will be served. The CTLGrads Summer Journal Club will meet starting on Thursday, July 12 and meet every other Thursday through July (6/14, 6/28, 7/12, and 7/26) in 212 Butler Library. If you are away from campus and would like to join in on the conversation, please contact the facilitator, Chris Chen (, Center for Teaching and Learning, for information about attending remotely. For the 7/12 meeting, participants will be reading Chapter 6 of "How Learning Works: Seven Research-Based Principles for Smart Teaching" by Ambrose, et al, and "Thawing the Chilly Climate: Inclusive Teaching Resources for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math" by Friedrich et al, To Improve the Academy (2002).
