      The CTL Reading Club is an opportunity to discuss the trends and research related to the practice of teaching and learning with like-minded peers from the Jefferson community. The goal is to promote professional development, discussion, and reflection while forming a network of like-minded peers.

      By focusing on articles, chapters, and excerpts from publications rather than an entire text, participants may attend sessions that pique interest or curiosity or all. The reading group will meet on the third Wednesday of the month beginning in September through May.

      Interested parties should contact Dr. Julie Phillips for the reading list for the first four sessions.
