This Fall Break, take a BREAK and FALL into a good book! What better way to spend Fall Break than with one of the many books on teaching and learning from the Kaneb Center’s extensive library? If you have a specific pedagogical question, we can also help guide you to some helpful selections.
Beyond brushing up on your knowledge of pedagogy, if you’re looking to diversify your teaching portfolio and gain additional professional development experience, you should consider applying for the Kaneb Center’s Graduate Associate opening (see the call below for more information).
