Many of us plan to read more over the summer…  but we often don’t know what to read or can’t find the time to finish what we start.  The CTLT Summer Reading Challenge can help!

Summer Kickoff - May 14

Join us for the annual Summer Kickoff on May 14th from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Get a preview of CTLT’s summer programming, hear book talks, meet the other Summer Reading Challenge participants, and enjoy lunch. No registration is required.

Teaching Naked

This year, our common reading is Teaching Naked: How Moving Technology Out of Your Classroom Will Improve Student Learning by Jose’ Antonio Bowen. In addition to providing a popular and insightful take on teaching, Bowen will also be the keynote speaker for the 2020 University-Wide Teaching & Learning Symposium.

The Challenge

Additionally, each participant is challenged to select two more teaching-related books to read over the summer from the categories of fiction, non-fiction, or memoir/biographical. Participants who use the CTLT Reading Challenge ReggieNet site to share their thoughts on three books will receive a dining certificate at the Summer Reading Challenge Roundup on August 5th.
