Professional Reading Series

In an effort to promote and support teaching and learning excellence at The Citadel, the Center for Excellence and Innovation in Teaching, Learning and Distance Education hosts and sponsors college-, school-, department-, or learning community-level professional reading series sessions.

As one of the center’s foundational offerings, the series promotes the idea that effective, student-centered teaching and learning requires a commitment not only to improving and assessing one’s daily practice but, also, dedicating time and energy to reading and reflecting upon pedagogical best practices and emerging educational technologies, and remaining conversant with the latest scholarship of teaching and learning research.

If faculty or staff are interested in facilitating a school, department, or learning community reading series under the sponsorship of the CEITL&DE, please contact the center’s director, Diana Cheshire, Ph.D. ( or Britnie Kane, Ph.D. (


Fall 2019



iGen: Why Today's Superconnected Kids are Growing Up Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy--and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood--and What that Means for the Rest of Us.

Twenge is a psychology professor at San Diego State University, and her book has gotten quite a bit of press, including a "Best Tech Book of 2017" from Wired Magazine. Since our students are of the iGen generation, we thought we would spend some time learning about this group, so that we can consider--together--how we might best reach them.

If you're interested in joining us, free copies (that's right, free!) are available in CEITL & DE's office,
363 Bond Hall on a first come, first serve basis.
