Spring 2020 Course: Teaching Strategies

Fridays, 11:45am-1:45pm

Dr. Kaitlin Mondello, The Teaching and Learning Center, The Graduate Center, CUNY

Come spend lunchtime on Fridays to learn more about, practice, and reflect on pedagogy here at CUNY and in Higher Ed.

This course provides Graduate Center students with community and structure to help them prepare for and reflect on teaching at CUNY. This work proceeds from an understanding of the social contexts of teaching at CUNY, as well as the positionalities of graduate student instructors and adjuncts. This discussion-based course will use short theoretical readings to facilitate participants’ development of their own teaching philosophies and materials. The curriculum and structure will be responsive to the needs of the group.
