Participants in the Teaching and Learning Book Club read a selected book on a topic of broad interest to Keene State faculty and gather to discuss their reading and potential applications in their courses. This is an opportunity for participants to engage in cross-disciplinary discussions with faculty peers, with the potential to initiate broader discussions across the campus.
In Fall 2016 we will be reading Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, and Mark A. McDaniel (Belknap Press, 2014).
If you are interested in joining the book club, please contact Chris Odato.

Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty by James M. Lang (Harvard University Press, 2013).
