CUNY Graduate Center
Now in its 4th year, this one-day intensive pedagogy workshop was conceived by a group of former public school teachers, experienced graduate student adjuncts, and full-time faculty, who were concerned by the lack of formal training and support many instructors receive. The conference includes workshops on pedagogy basics—such as how to design a course syllabus—plus workshops for more experienced instructors who would like a chance to share teaching strategies with each other.
After breakfast and the keynote address, there will be 3 consecutive breakout sessions, each featuring 3 concurrent workshops options.
Please RSVP and register here for the workshops you’d like to attend (one each during the 11am, 12:15pm, and 2:45pm sessions).
If a workshop fills up, we’ll add you to a waiting list and be sure to let you know if tickets become available.
