Weimer discusses five key changes to practice that tie teaching and curriculum to the process and objectives of learning rather than to the content delivery alone to help college and university faculty understand the meaning, practice, and ramifications of the learner-centered approach. Enhancements added to the new edition include up-to-date examples of practice in action from a variety of disciplines, an entirely new chapter on the research support for learner-centered approaches, and a more in-depth discussion of how students' developmental issues impact the effectiveness of learner-centered teaching.

This classic book was suggested by participants at the book club on “Whistling Vivaldi” as an ideal follow up. Now the president of Spelman College, Dr. Tatum was trained as a developmental psychologist, specializing in racial identity development. Her insights about how to think about racism and coping strategies for minority students are as relevant as ever. She is also interested in why talking about racism is challenging for all people, and provides strategies for how to engage in those conversations productively. While the two books support each other, Whistling Vivaldi is not a pre-requisite for participation in this book club.

Limited to 15 participants. Each will receive a copy of the book.

"Make it Stick" has been described as "the single best work I have encountered on the subject [of how students learn]. Anyone with an interest in teaching or learning will benefit from reading this book, which not only presents thoroughly grounded research but does so in an eminently readable way that is accessible even to students" (Chronicle of Higher Education, April 2014). Come join us for a lively discussion about how to create learning environments that make the information "stick" for students. The first 12 faculty members who sign up will receive a complimentary copy of the book.
