Faculty Book Clubs
Each long semester, a Faculty Book Club will meet three times, to read and discuss literature relevant to the QEP and other academic endeavors. The Faculty Book Club will be part of the instructors’ regular development activities and will be self-reported in the Annual Faculty Report, the F2.08.
The first offering will be led by the QEP Seahawks SOAR Advisory Faculty Book Club Sub-committee Chair in spring 2013, and the book selection will be Teaching Unprepared Students: Strategies for Promoting Success and Retention in Higher Education, by Kathleen F. Gabriel. Faculty and staff can volunteer to lead subsequent book discussions, upon consultation with the QEP Co-Director of Implementation and Sub-committee Chair.
In the fall of 2013 Dr. Kathleen F. Gabriel, author of Teaching Unprepared Students: Strategies for Promoting Success and Retention in Higher Education will be a guest speaker at the August Faculty Development Days. The fall selection for the Faculty Book Club will be You Say More Than You Think, by Janine Driver & Mariska van Aalst. All faculty and staff are welcome to participate. Contact Jamie Clark at extension 6317 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details of meeting times and dates for this semester.
