Each semester we organize a small number of discussions of books about teaching and learning. Each book discussion group consists of about a half dozen people, meeting two or three times over the course of a month or so. The book discussions build community across campus over issues of teaching and learning.  To recommend a book discussion group for Fall 2014, please contact steven.jones@gcsu.edu.  Please write "Book Discussions" in the subject line.  CELTS will purchase copies of the books for the book members. Also, please look at the list of books currently available in the CELTS library by visiting http://www.librarything.com/catalog/gcsu_celts.
