The CATL Book Club is offered every semester to promote professional development, discussion and reflection while learning more about learning, teaching and educational issues. We choose books with a variety of related topics including innovative teaching techniques, learning processes and changes in higher education. Discussions take place every semester and are lively and thought provoking.
If you're interested in taking part in our next Book Club, you can email the CATL or watch your email for our announcement. Also if you have a book you'd like us to consider as a future reading, please email us.
Below, you can find our most recent book selection and a link to our previous Book Club titles, all of which are available for loan from the CATL Library.
What the Best College Students Do
The author of the best-selling book What the Best College Teachers Do is back with more humane, doable, and inspiring help, this time for students who want to get the most out of college - and every other educational enterprise, too.
Combining academic research on learning and motivation with insights drawn from interviews with people who have won Nobel Prizes, Emmys, fame, or the admiration of people in their field, Ken Bain identifies the key attitudes that distinguished the best college students from their peers.
