The BCcampus Online Book Club started as a community-driven project by a group of volunteer post-secondary educators interested in opportunities to connect with colleagues on topics of professional interest in teaching and learning. The guidelines for this book club will be that it be open, informal, and fun—an easy way for participants to share ideas and strategies and take what we learn to practice.
In our first offering of the BCcampus Online Book Club in Fall 2018, we read How Learning Works. We have shared our first book club model at presentations for the Ed Developers Caucus Online Showcase, the Educational Technology Users Group (ETUG) and in this post the Eight Essential Principles of an Online Book Club.
In Fall 2019 we read Small Teaching: Everyday Lessons from the Science of Learning by James M. Lang facilitated by a fine roster of educators from the B.C. post-secondary community. Constantly evolving our Book Club, we shared our learnings from this offering as well.
Our next and very exciting offering of the Book Club starts in April 2021! We will be reading and discussing Small Teaching Online by Flower Darby with James Lang. This learning opportunity is free but you will need to register to participate.
