Contributed by Wade Pickren

Thursday, April 17, 2014, 4:00 - 5:30 p.m.
Center for Faculty Excellence, 316 Gannett Center

Helping students develop the habits and skills necessary for effective sustained reading is one of the biggest challenges in teaching the humanities in the 21st century. This combination social event and discussion will address this challenge and draw upon the experiences of humanities faculty who have tried to address it directly (leaders of slow-read courses, for example). Please come at 4:00 p.m. to enjoy refreshments followed at 4:30 p.m. by a roundtable discussion. Co-sponsored by the Humanities Working Group and the Center for Faculty Excellence.
