Spring Course – PDEV 79401: Teaching Strategies

  • Hi All,

    Current GC students may be interested in registering for PDEV 79401: Teaching Strategies, a zero credit course developed by the TLC. The course will be taught in Spring 2024 by TLC Assistant Director for Open Education, Laurie Hurson.

    Here is a description of the course:

    Teaching Strategies (PDEV 79401)
    This course provides Graduate Center students from all disciplines with community and structure to help them prepare for and reflect upon their development as teachers. Our work will proceed 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 teaching philosophies and materials. The course curriculum and structure will be responsive to the group’s needs. 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 technologies and online learning, cultivating student writing, affective responses in classroom settings, and culturally responsive pedagogy.

    The course will be offered in Spring 2024 on Fridays, 9:30-11:30am.

    Please email Dr. Laurie Hurson with questions about the course (
