Fall 2014 Faculty Book Group

Make it Stick: The Science of Successful Learning (Brown, Roediger and McDaniel, 2014)

Facilitated by Catherine Ross and Kristi Verbeke

Join us for our popular book discussion series. This semester we will be exploring Make it Stick. To most of us, learning something “the hard way” implies wasted time and effort. Good teaching, it is often argued, should be creatively tailored to the different learning styles of students and should use strategies that make learning easier. Make It Stick turns fashionable ideas like these on their head. Drawing on recent discoveries in cognitive psychology and other disciplines, the authors offer concrete techniques for becoming more productive learners. Let’s talk about how we can help our students “make it stick’ in our own classes.

The TLC book group meets four times in the semester on Fridays from 12:30-1:45 (9/19, 9/26, 10/3 and 10/10). To register, please email Catherine Ross (rossce@wfu.edu). The TLC will provide the book and lunch at all sessions. These discussions are very popular so we ask that you register only if you are available to attend all four sessions.
