CTL Reading Group

Hi folks, we are pleased to announce that the CTL reading group’s book is now available.  We will be reading Maryellen Weimer’s Inspired College Teaching:  A Career-Long Resource for Professional Growth.  Times that the reading group will meet are listed below.  New for this year, we will focus on Weimer’s book both Fall and Spring semester (it’s that good!), reading chapters 1-6 during the fall, and chapters 7-10 in the spring.

Dr. Weimer examines faculty life and teaching from beginning to end, and shows how a career-long quest for great teaching can be exciting and fulfilling.  As always, books are free.  The chapters in this book are fairly self-contained, so faculty may sign up to participate both fall and spring semesters or just one or the other.  When you respond to sign up, please let us know if you prefer the Tuesday, 3:30-4:30 time or the Wednesday, 9:00-10:00 time (dates are below).  Participants may switch back and forth as needed to accommodate their schedules.  You can sign up by emailing us at or by calling 605-677-5411
