CIE Reading Group
Each year the CIE Board selects a book which has connections to the classroom, but that also has ties to our personal and professional acumen. The books for the 2016-2017 will be Mindsight: The New Science of Personal Transformation by Daniel Siegel and Make It Stick: The Science of Successful Learning by Peter C. Brown, Henry L. Roediger III and Mark A. McDaniel.
Faculty can get a copy of the book – free of charge. Please contact Rita Kucera (email@example.com) to request a copy. The book will be discussed during a session of the October Professional Development Day in the fall.
