Join Educational Developers from the Office of Teaching and Learning for a Book Club discussing Relationship-Rich Education: How Human Connections Drive Success In College (Felten and Lambert 2020). Drawing on nearly 400 interviews with students, faculty, and staff at 29 higher education institutions, Relationship-Rich Education provides readers with practical advice on how they can develop and sustain powerful relationship-based learning in their own contexts. Ultimately, the book is an invitation—and a challenge—for faculty, administrators, and student life staff to move relationships from the periphery to the center of undergraduate education.
During each meeting, book club members will take part in a facilitated discussion of one or two chapters of the book 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 teaching assistants and sessionals).
