On May 2, 2016 the Teaching and Learning Center held the inaugural Teach@CUNY Day. Aimed at GC students who will be teaching for the first time in Fall 2016, but open to all members of the CUNY community, the day featured a series of talks, workshops, and conversations intended to immerse attendees in the histories and methodologies necessary to design and teach effective courses at CUNY.
Mellon Humanities Teaching and Learning Alliance
The Teaching and Learning Center partners with the Graduate Center’s Provost Office and the Futures Initiative and Laguardia Community College’s Center for Teaching and Learning on the Mellon Humanities Teaching and Learning Alliance. This grant, running from 2016-2020, will place 27 Graduate Center doctoral students at LaGuardia Community College. The doctoral students will gain onsite training from LaGuardia mentors and master faculty, while LaGuardia students will benefit from inspiring teaching, resources for cultural enrichment, and a humanities mentorship program. The initiative reflects the Graduate Center’s integrated approach to doctoral education, as well as its commitment to increasing access, boosting undergraduate graduation rates, and diversifying the humanities.
