Discuss the ideas from the book as well as practical applications of those ideas in the classroom and in advising and mentoring relationships with students.
Reading Group: Transforming Students: Fulfilling the Promise of Higher Education by Charity Johansson & Peter Felten
Thursday, January 22; 12:00-1:15 p.m.
Belk Pavilion 200
This short book by Charity Johansson & Peter Felten provides powerful insights on any university’s core educational mission “to shape students into engaged adults who embrace learning as a lifelong endeavor.” A synthesis of extensive interviews with students, teachers, and parents and research on learning and development, Transforming Students describes phases of transformational learning and suggests practices that can help us create such learning experiences for our students.
During this lunch session, we’ll discuss the ideas from the book as well as practical applications and implications of those ideas in our classrooms, advising and mentoring relationships with students. (And the modest authors of this book may be persuaded to join us for that discussion.) Lunch is provided.
To sign up, please use the registration form. Register by January 9th at noon to receive a copy of the book.
