"Wouldn't it be nice if we could get together with a small group of friends once in a while and talk about what really matters—our teaching? That's the Book Club—a chance to read a book with profound ideas about teaching and learning, and then talk about it with other people who share our struggles. What a great way to spend a few hours." ~Bill Wresch, Associate Dean, COB
