Reading for Teaching

Is there a book about teaching on your shelf collecting dust? Have you always wanted to read that book that was recommended to you but don’t have the time? Do you want to share a book that has inspired your teaching practice with your colleagues? Reading for Teaching is for you!

A collaborative program co-facilitated by the Teaching Commons and York University Libraries, our Reading for Teaching program is an informal, collegial opportunity to engage with colleagues from across campus interested in reading together.

Our group began by reading The Slow Professor (Maggie Berg & Barbara K. Seeber). Scott McLaren, Teaching & Learning Librarian, has written a brief summary of our early discussions available on the Teaching Commons blog.

Conversations in person and on Moodle have evolved into discussions of the Craft of Slow, Small, Connected Teaching – a topic that will inform our next meeting in late February 2020.
