If interested, please complete the Summer Reading Groups Interest Form on the right of this page by June 9, 2017. In the form, you will be asked to rank several books about teaching and learning based on your interest. You may also write in a book recommendation. CETL will provide the results of the book rankings to the group, and the group will decide on which book to read and discuss.
After June 9, CETL will provide the contact information for all registrants to the Summer Book Group, who will be responsible for organizing themselves.
