Here’s what’s happening at the Center for Teaching and Learning This Week:

CTL Conversations: “Data and Privacy in the Classroom”

Wednesday, February 22, 4:00-5:00pm, NVC 14-266

What kind of data do we collect on our students in the course of developing our assignments and curriculum? How and where is this information being stored? When does our request for personal reflection and disclosure become intrusive? Who has access to the work that is being done by our students in our classes?

Faculty are welcome to drop in and leave at any point during the session. Refreshments available. RSVP appreciated but not necessary.

 

Coming up.…

 

Workshop: “Strategies for Active Learning”

Monday, February 27, 3:00-4:00pm, NVC 14-270

Active learning (sometimes called student-centered learning) is an instructional method that focuses on building skills, competencies, and critical thinking abilities by engaging students in active behaviors in classroom. This workshop will introduce faculty to several active learning techniques and allow time for attendees to develop a lesson plan that incorporates these strategies. Please click here to RSVP.

 

CTL Conversations:  “Engaging with Sources in the Era of Fake News” cosponsored by the Department of English’s First-Year Writing Program and Great Works of Literature:

Wednesday, March 1, 4:30-6:00pm, NVC 14-270

AND/OR

Thursday, March 2, 12:30-2:00pm, NVC 14-280

 

Join faculty across Baruch and our Writing Program in an informal discussion on how to engage with “fake news” in our classrooms. How do we define and talk about so-called fake news? What are concrete activities and assignments we can share across disciplines that teach students how to evaluate and cite sources ethically and effectively? How do we teach students the skills to navigate sources in the classroom and beyond?
