About Teaching²

Teaching Squared (Teaching²) is a Faculty Reading Circle to promote conversations on campus about teaching.

Those who sign up to participate receive a free copy of the book selected for that quarter.  Meetings are generally held on Thursdays from 12:10 – 1:00 pm during Weeks 3, 5, and 8 in a central location on campus.

Teaching² is facilitated by CEE in a conversational format designed for maximal faculty-to-faculty discussion and interaction.  To allow us to engage in a lively and productive small-group discussion, enrollment is limited to 12 participants.

Registration is currently closed.

If you would like more information about Teaching², please email us.

Book Image: Learner-Centered Teaching

Learner-centered teaching: Five key changes to practice by Maryellen Weimer (2013)

“This book is for faculty.  However, it’s not a book exclusively for learner-centered teaching converts. It’s also a book for faculty who think learner-centered ideas might be of interest, but they have questions and concerns.  Are these ways of teaching that retain high standards and intellectual rigor? ….Does this way of teaching diminish the role and importance of teachers? This book offers answers to these questions.”  From Learner-centered teaching: Five key changes to practice
