We are pleased to announce the next offering of the BCcampus Online Book Club. This free, open, and online professional learning event starts this Fall on September 9th and finishes on November 15th, 2019. The book selected is “Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning” by James M. Lang.
Following up on lessons learned from the initial offering of the Book Club last year, there will additional support for interaction between participants through two open source tools (Mattermost chat and Big Blue Button web conferencing) offered by the OpenETC.
If you are a new participant, take a look at what we did last year in the Book Club in our reading of “How Learning Works”. If your interest is piqued, we encourage you get ahead with a summer reading of “Small Teaching” which should be readily available from your local campus library. There are nine wonderful and highly knowledgeable facilitators from our post-secondary community that will lead our discussion on each Chapter topic: Peter Arthur, Gina Bennett, Asif Devji, Isabeau Iqbal, Laura MacKay, Sylvia Riessner, Keith Webster and Lucas Wright.
All are welcome who are interested in teaching and learning, sharing ideas and exploring our Book Club as an informal and fun way for us to learn together and meet new people in our community.
