As we wrap up another semester, now is a great time to think about what you can do during the summer to prepare for fall classes and to continue developing as a teacher. As part of these preparations, the Kaneb Center invites you to take advantage of the following resources:

  • Summer Reading Groups. The Kaneb Center purchases books on teaching and learning in higher education for small informal reading groups. Faculty, teaching assistants, and postdoctoral scholars are invited to sign up for one of the prearranged summer reading groups or propose their own group. These groups are an excellent chance to talk about teaching and learning with colleagues and to meet new friends interested in pedagogy.
  • Pedagogy Journal Group. Our pedagogy journal group, which meets to discuss journal articles related to various teaching and learning topics, will resume later in the summer. Meeting times will be announced according to participant availability. To be added to the email list for the journal group, send an email to Rachel Banke. Examples of past readings can be found here. All are welcome!
  • Graduate Education (GRED) Courses. Short credit-bearing summer courses on teaching and learning in various fields are available to all graduate students. Enrollment is now open, and be sure to submit a tuition waiver online. Contact Joanna Sherbun with any questions.
  • Individual Consultations. Schedule a one-on-one (confidential) consultation with a member of the Kaneb Center staff to discuss any teaching needs. We are happy to help you review CIFs, discuss your course plans for the fall, develop new types of assessments or other learning activities, or consider the integration of technology into your course.
  • Kaneb Center Library. The Kaneb Center library holds hundreds of books, videos, and other materials on a variety of teaching and learning topics. Visit our library and check out some great selections for your summer reading!

We wish you a happy and productive summer, and as always, please drop by or let us know if we can be of assistance for any of your teaching needs!
