Educator’s Book Club

Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning (James M. Lang)

Spring 2016

UMD’s Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is excited to offer our first Educator’s Book Club. Join colleagues from across campus as we reflect on our current teaching practices and discuss ways to foster student engagement and motivation, and increase overall student success. The book club is open to all those who teach on campus.

This spring we will be reading James M. Lang’s most recent book, Small Teaching. Lang introduces us to some of the research on how human beings learn and some “small teaching” practices -- powerful, research-based learning techniques that take very little time or planning, but are proven to have big impacts on student learning and engagement. Most importantly, he speaks from experience, having tested each of these techniques in his own classes to ensure that they are easy to implement and impactful on student learning.

Space is limited, so please use the link provided below to sign-up soon if you’re interested. Scheduling of the book club meetings will happen in early January, and we will do our best to accommodate everyone who signs up. The first meeting, an opportunity to meet the group and pick-up a complimentary copy of the book, will take place during the week of January 16th-20th and will be followed by six additional meetings throughout the semester (every other week).
