Center for Teaching & Learning

Community Assembly

The CTL pairs with the Teaching Excellence Committee to sponsor the fall Community Assembly sessions. Events include a speaker presenting on a teaching and learning excellence topic as well as breakout informational sessions.  Past Community Assembly session material may be accessed on the following webpage.

Book Club

Book clubs are facilitated by faculty who determine titles reflecting trends or research in higher education teaching and learning.  To most of us, learning something "the hard way" implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, we believe, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Join Dr. Rob McAlister (OT) as he leads discussion about techniques for enhancing more productive learners.  This brown bag lunch series will cover 4 weeks during the month of February in the Library Kentucky Room:

  • February 6
  • February 13
