The purpose of the book club is to create discussions surrounding best practices for teaching and learning in our discipline. Participants will be able to hear from other equine faculty and network through this professional development opportunity.


The first book we will be tackling is "Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning" by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III, and Mark A. McDaniel.


A few of the questions we will be asking about this book are:

  1. Are you already applying these concepts in your teaching? If so, how?

  2. How do you teach students about learning?

  3. What misconceptions about teaching/learning have created roadblocks for your students? How can these be overcome?

  4. What is the role of assessment in learning?
