Opportunities for faculty and staff members to read and discuss books on topics related to teaching and learning are important to the life of a community of practice.

The Teaching Commons supports the formation of book discussion groups by recommending specific books, or by supporting groups formed by faculty or staff. Funding is available to cover the cost of books for group members.
