Book Groups

The Teaching and Learning Forum sponsors faculty/contract staff book groups each fall and spring semester.  The list of titles is distributed to campus and posted on the website before the semester begins, and you are encouraged to select a first and second choice from the list.  The TLF orders and distributes the books to each book group member.  Groups may choose their own facilitator or you may sign up for a book and be placed in a group based on that choice via the Book Group Sign-Up form. 
The TLF will also pay for a drink and a snack for each group member from Art Elements (up to $10.00/person) once during the semester.  This can be for a regularly scheduled meeting, a discussion, or congratulations for finishing the book. The facilitator of each group will pick up an authorization form from the Teaching and Learning Forum office and bring it with your group to Art Elements.


Book Group Guidelines. Information to help you get the most from your book group. Also, there's important information for the group facilitator.

Book groups should submit a report about their book and the group's discussion.  Go to our book group wiki where you can submit your reactions so that everyone else in the community can read and use these.
