TLC Fellowship: Spring 2019 Semester

The CUNY Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center invites applications for a Teaching and Learning Center Fellowship for the Spring 2019 semester. TLC Fellows support CUNY Graduate Center students who are teaching across CUNY by consulting with graduate instructors during office hours, developing workshops and focused inquiry groups, producing content for the Center’s teaching Handbook, planning the Teach@CUNY Summer Institute, and contributing to a range of special projects. This academic year, TLC fellows are working on projects related to socially conscious pedagogy, interdisciplinary teaching practices, Open Educational Resources, educational technology, teaching as an international student, classroom aesthetics and design, and other topics. During the 2019 Spring semester, these themes will continue, and will expand to include listening and discussion based instructional methodologies and a focus on accessibility in the college classroom.

This is a terrific opportunity to join a team of committed educators who are thinking through what support for graduate student teachers can and should look like, specifically in the context of the nation’s largest, urban, public university.

GC TLC Fellows report to the director of the Teaching and Learning Center, and will be expected to work both independently and in collaboration with other TLC fellows and post-doctoral fellows. Ideal candidates will be deeply engaged with the City University of New York, and will be experienced college teachers familiar with current pedagogical conversations. Strong writing, digital, and presentational skills are required, as is current enrollment in a doctoral program at the Graduate Center.
