Here’s what’s happening at the Center for Teaching and Learning This Week:
Wednesday, February 15, 4:00-5:00pm, NVC 14-270
Thursday, February 16, 12:30-1:30pm, NVC 14-267
Baruch’s student body has a significant number of students who are multilingual and who may be experiencing the American educational system for the first time. How do we strengthen the communication skills of these students? How do we encourage class participation and design assignments that engage all of our students? What are resources that the college offers to help students and faculty?
Both conversations will include consultants from Tools for Clear Speech and the Writing Center who specialize in teaching English as a second language (TESOL).
Sign up for one or both sessions. Faculty are welcome to drop in and leave at any point during the session. Refreshments available. RSVP appreciated but not necessary.
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.
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.
