ND Learning | Kaneb Center Summer Reading Group Signup is Now Open!
The Kaneb Center purchases books on teaching and learning in higher education for small, informal reading groups. This program is available to Notre Dame instructors including faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral scholars.
We invite you to organize your own cohort and sign up as a group! Or if you don’t have a group, you can sign up as an individual and we will organize a group based on book selection and availability.
1. Select – Check out the attached flyer for information on our recommended summer reads, or propose a different title for your group.
This year’s Kaneb Center selections:
Intentional Tech: Principles to Guide the Use of Educational Technology by Derek Bruff
Skim, Dive, Surface: Teaching Digital Reading by Jenae Cohn
What Inclusive Instructors Do: Principles and Practices for Excellence in College Teaching by Tracie Addy
Minding Bodies: How Physical Space, Sensation, and Movement Affect Learning by Susan Hrach
The Courage to Teach: Exploring the Inner Landscape of a Teacher’s Life by Parker J. Palmer
2. Read and Discuss – The facilitator will contact the group to determine reading goals and arrange meetings. Groups may meet several times with specific reading goals or they may meet once, upon completion of the book. We recommend 2 to 4 meetings for optimal discussion.
3. Submit – Once the group has finished, the facilitator will provide email@example.com a short summary (1 page or less) of the group’s impressions of the book.
