Book Groups

CTEL book groups are ongoing discussion groups designed to promote, reading, thinking, and discussion around a specific text. Each semester, CTEL will select four to seven books based on current trends in higher education, university goals and expectations, and faculty/staff interests and suggestions. CTEL-selected books will be provided for all registered participants. Once convened, each book group will establish its own meeting schedule and location. Bradley faculty and professional staff are asked to limit their participation to one book group per semester. 

The following book groups have been selected for the spring 2017 semester. To register, please e-mail ctel@bradley.edu.
