What is the Faculty Book Club?

The Faculty Book Club is an informal reading group for Queens College faculty members who are interested in reading about, thinking about, and discussing learning and teaching with colleagues across disciplines.  Guided by facilitators from the Center for Teaching and Learning, book club members will read and discuss the book, How Humans Learn: The Science and Stories Behind Effective College Teaching by Joshua R. Eyler. From West Virginia University Press:

Eyler identifies five broad themes running through recent scientific inquiry—curiosity, sociality, emotion, authenticity, and failure—devoting a chapter to each and providing practical takeaways for busy teachers. He also interviews and observes college instructors across the country, placing theoretical insight in dialogue with classroom experience.

The Center for Teaching and Learning will provide book club members with lunch and a copy of How Humans Learn

Meetings are scheduled for Wednesdays from 12:00 – 2:00 on the following dates: September 18th, October 2nd & 16th, November 6th & 13th, and December 4th, in Q-Side in the Dining Hall
