    Dear All,

    I believe this event will be of interest to many of you.

    This year the CUNY Innovative Teaching Academy is kicking off a new and virtual teaching workshop series. Teaching Matters is a monthly, free, one-hour summit of CUNY faculty and staff devoted to sharing innovative teaching strategies and student-centered learning methods. Each gathering includes a focused and engaged peer-to-peer workshop and a few practical teaching tips that can be used in any classroom.

    Accessibility as Good Pedagogy: Universal Design for Inclusive Learning on November 12 @ 11am-12pm EST

    Providing an inclusive learning environment and educational materials that are accessible for all students is as much a matter of sound pedagogy as it is a legal requirement. Join us for an interactive workshop on accessibility in teaching and learning with the diverse student population at CUNY in mind, and a discussion on how integrating principles of Universal Design in Learning (UDL) will not only help accommodate students with disabilities, but also address the various educational needs of all students. Read more about UDL in teaching and learning.

    Antonia Levy, Associate Director

    Michelle Gastulo, Instructional Design Specialist

    Both from the Office of Faculty Development and Instructional Technology (OFDIT) at CUNY School of Professional Studies)

    The CUNY Innovative Teaching Academy, established in 2020, aims to improve pedagogy at scale and recognize excellence and innovation in teaching by CUNY faculty. The Academy is predicated on the recognition that the quality of pedagogy and access to high-impact practices has a direct and measurable impact on the quantity and quality of degrees produced by CUNY and the ability of CUNY graduates to be well-positioned for meaningful careers and further study.
