Education and Teaching Resources


Welcome to the Caltech Education and Teaching Resources LibGuide! This guide contains titles that discuss teaching and learning, including areas such as research, practical application, and other related communications skills. These titles are selected and maintained by the Caltech Project for Effective Teaching (CPET), the Caltech Center for Teaching, Learning and Outreach (Caltech CTLO), and the Caltech Library.

Print titles are located throughout the Caltech Library locations. Electronic books are designated by [Ebook] after the title, and are accessible only to Caltech faculty, students and staff from off-campus.

Links in this guide will take you to the catalog record for print items, where you can view availability and more information about the title. Ebook links will go directly to the title (you will be prompted for your Caltech username and password if you are off-campus).
