Welcome to the KCTL Faculty Reading Group


The KCTL Reading Group meets with the purpose of reading critical and thought provoking books, one per semester, about teaching and learning. Books are ordered by KCTL and are available free before the semester starts at which time the facilitator breaks the book into reading portions upon which the meetings will be based. The meeting and reading information is distributed at the beginning of the semester to any individuals who express interest in participating.

Our meetings last about one hour and we discuss the the book as well as ideas, questions, and outside readings brought by the members themselves that relate to the section of the book we are reading.  The meetings are open to all  faculty, staff, and administrators who are interested in the topics being discussed. The books that we read often have far reaching implications for the culture and society, however we always connect what we are reading to actual teaching and learning practice in our classrooms.
