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. (diana.cheshire@citadel.edu) or Britnie Kane, Ph.D. (britnie.kane@citadel.edu)

Spark of Learning

 

The Spark of Learning: Energizing the College Classroom with the Science of Emotion

Informed by the fields of psychology and neuroscience, professor of psychology Sarah Rose Cavanagh describes ways that we, as college professors, can capitalize on the “science of emotion” to transform our classrooms from “dry, arid affairs” to places that stimulate students’ emotional (and, ideally, intellectual) engagement in coursework. According to reviewers, “Cavanagh immediately engages her audience through narrative and humor and manages to cover nearly every major insight from the literature. This book can be read by anyone who cares about teaching.” My interest is piqued! I hope yours will be, too. Join us in the spring of 2020 for CEITL & DE’s Professional Reading Series, where we learn and question together how best to support students’ deep learning in higher education.

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