Some suggestions for your summer reading list...

"Regular" posts should hopefully resume relatively soon but as the grading stack slowly goes down, I'll just share a couple of links that provide some great suggestions for books on (mostly college) teaching. Rebecca Onion's list is based on suggestions from her Twitter community and includes some teaching classics but also some that are more about the general state of higher education (rather than specific teaching advice). Sherman Dorn builds on Onion's list with several books that are likely to be more helpful for new teachers. I have to particularly second his recommendation of Teaching What You Don't Know, by Therese Huston, which I found invaluable when I was preparing to teach the data analysis course two years ago.
