Join Educational Developers from the Office of Teaching and Learning for a Virtual Book Club discussing The Spark of Learning: Energizing the College Classroom with the Science of Emotion (Cavanagh, S., 2016). The Spark of Learning considers the emotional impact of teaching style and course design using a wide range of evidence from the study of education, psychology, and neuroscience, and provides practical examples of successful classroom activities from a variety of disciplines in secondary and higher education. 

At each meeting, book club members will take part in a facilitated discussion of one or two chapters of The Spark of Learning and discuss their thoughts, questions or share experiences from their own classes. The book club is open to all University of Guelph faculty and instructors (including sessionals).
