This week's No Comment item is an announcement from California State University at Chico about the Center for Excellence in Learning and Teaching (CELT) Book Club:

The CELT Book Club will be continuing in the spring with exploration of a book by Laura Rendón, the keynote speaker at this year’s CELT Conference. Her book, Sentipensante (Sensing/Thinking) Pedagogy: Educating for Wholeness, Social Justice and Liberation (Stylus Publishing, 2008) is described as:

Laura Rendón is Professor of Higher Education and Chair of the Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Studies at Iowa State University, College of Human Sciences.
