Teaching and Learning Reading Group


Gordon Young (Communications and Performing Arts) is the facilitator of this faculty interest group that meets monthly to examine student and professor cultures here at KCC through the lens of thought-provoking readings. Readings in previous semesters have included Higher Education: How Colleges are Wasting our Money and Failing our Kids and What We Can Do about It; Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior; The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement; In the Basement of the Ivory Tower: Confessions of an Accidental Academic; Mind at Work: Valuing the Intelligence of the American Worker; and The Shallows: How the Internet is Changing the Way We Think, Read and Remember.


For the 2014-2015 academic year, the group has chosen to read Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty by Lang in the fall and Moral Tribes: Emotion, Reason, and the Gap Between Us and Them by Greene in the spring.

For more information or to join, please contact Gordon at We welcome all faculty and also KCC community members who work directly with students, and invite you to suggest future readings for the group. For our current and past work, please visit our wiki.
