This year’s book selections are Ken Bain’s What the Best College Teachers Do and Van Brunt and Lewis’ A Faculty Guide to Addressing Disruptive and Dangerous Behavior. Both have earned excellent reviews from faculty and CTLs across the country and are sure to stimulate discussion among the participants.
