TLC Fellowships: 2024-2025

The CUNY Graduate Center’s Teaching and Learning Center invites applications for Teaching and Learning Center Fellowships for the 2024-2025 academic year.

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 Teach@CUNY Handbook, planning the Teach@CUNY Institutes, and contributing to a range of special projects.

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 staff members. Ideal candidates will be deeply engaged with teaching and learning at CUNY, and will be experienced college teachers familiar with current pedagogical conversations.
