    Greetings, All,

    I\’d like to encourage GC students who are interested in connecting with other student instructors to reflect upon their teaching this fall to consider registering for Teaching Strategies (PDEV 79401), description below. The course will meet virtually on Fridays from 11:45am-1:45pm. The workload will be minimal, and targeted specifically to participants\’ needs.

    Please reach out if you have any questions!

    Teaching Strategies (PDEV 79401)
    This course provides Graduate Center students with community and structure to help them prepare for and reflect upon their development as teachers. Work in the course proceeds from an understanding of the social contexts of teaching, as well as the positionalities of graduate student instructors and adjuncts. Short theoretical readings will help guide participants’ exploration and development of their own teaching philosophies and materials, and the curriculum and structure of the course will be responsive to both the needs of the group and to the realities of the moments in when we teach. In Fall 2020 The course will have particularly utility for instructors who are preparing for or are in the process of adjusting to teaching online as a result of the 2020 public health crisis.

    Foundational topics explored in the course will include classroom community, student-centered and active learning approaches, accessibility, course design and policies, lesson planning, assignment design, assessment, educational technology, writing pedagogy, affective responses in classroom settings, and Critical University Studies.

    Time: Fridays, 11:45-1:45 PM
