The Teaching Commons hosts a monthly Journal Club meeting to facilitate and encourage informal discussions of the scholarship of teaching and learning. Join us in reading a new article each month to discuss ideas, reactions, and questions with fellow colleagues interested in exploring innovation in teaching and learning.
