Recommended Reading

The cover of The Missing Course by David GooblarIf you are planning on reading for professional development this summer, please consider "The Missing Course: Everything They Never Taught You About College Teaching" by David Gooblar. CTE will host book discussion groups when we return in the Fall.

If you need a break from everything this summer, don't worry. Electronic and physical copies of the book will be available to you in the CTE book collection in the Knight Campus Library from now on. You're also welcome to join the book discussion groups in the Fall to hear what others got out of "The Missing Course."


Project Incubator

CTE wants to help you get work done on a project you have in mind for this summer. It can be related to your courses, graduate classes, your professional development, a personal passion project – anything that you could work on in a library (sorry, I can’t help with your home renovation project).

On Mondays and Tuesdays this summer from 8 am–4 pm, please join CTE in the Knight Campus Library for some goal setting, accountability, and focused work time. You can drop in for as little or as long as you like, as many times as you like. Stop by The Center (Knight 5579) to check in and grab a coffee, and then settle in to work!
