Fall 2014 Book Club

— filed under:

The CETL Book Club provides an opportunity for professional development through cross-disciplinary dialogue about provocative issues related to teaching and learning. Says Spring 2013 & Fall 2010 Book Club participant Bill Wresch, Associate Dean of the College of Business, "Wouldn't it be nice if we could get together with a small group of friends once in a while and talk about what really matters—our teaching? That's the Book Club—a chance to read a book with profound ideas about teaching and learning, and then talk about it with other people who share our struggles. What a great way to spend a few hours."

About the Book

From Amazon.comTeaching Naked book cover

You've heard about "flipping your classroom"—now find out how to do it! Introducing a new way to think about higher education, learning, and technology that prioritizes the benefits of the human dimension. José Bowen recognizes that technology is profoundly changing education and that if students are going to continue to pay enormous sums for campus classes, colleges will need to provide more than what can be found online and maximize "naked" face-to-face contact with faculty. Here, he illustrates how technology is most powerfully used outside the classroom, and, when used effectively, how it can ensure that students arrive to class more prepared for meaningful interaction with faculty. Bowen offers practical advice for faculty and administrators on how to engage students with new technology while restructuring classes into more active learning environments.
