Journal Clubs & Reading Groups

The Bok Center is pleased to offer journal clubs and reading groups for faculty who wish to engage with the research and practice of teaching and learning in a sustained way.

Science Education Journal Club

Our science education journal club, which meets biweekly during the academic year, explores current research on effective teaching and learning in STEM fields. The journal club meetings highlight relevant background information and key insights from selected articles published in science education journals.

Fall 2021 Reading Group

Zimmerman, Amateur HourWhat can we learn by looking back over the long history of teaching in American universities? In our Fall 2021 faculty reading group we'll be tackling Jonathan Zimmerman's splendid new history of higher education pedagogy, The Amateur Hour: A History of College Teaching in America (Johns Hopkins, 2020). 

Join a biweekly discussion group with other faculty to explore how the past century of faculty and administrative debates about the proper balance of research and teaching, teacher training, course evaluations, and academic specialization can help us think about the challenges facing higher ed now.
