CTL Conversations: “Fostering Post-Election Constructive and Inclusive Dialogue in the Classroom”
Tuesday, November 15, 1:00-2:00pm, NVC 4-125 and Wednesday, November 16, 4:00-5:00pm, NVC 14-245
The purpose of the event is to gather as a community to informally share techniques and resources to foster constructive and inclusive classroom discussion in light of the divisive election. Some of the questions we may collectively discuss include:
- How do I prepare for the conversation?
- How do I start the conversation?
- How do I promote inclusivity? How do I respect bipartisanship?
- What if the discussion heads in an uncomfortable/angry direction?
- What are some ideas for different activities/lessons?
- What are resources and events at Baruch? At CUNY?
All faculty and staff are welcome to attend either or all of the sessions. No RSVP necessary.
CTL Conversations is a time for faculty to come together to informally workshop, brainstorm, and discuss topics related to their teaching. Each week we’ll focus on a new topic and will invite members of the Baruch community who have expertise in the topic to be on hand too. Faculty are welcome to drop in and leave at any point during the session. Refreshments available.
Teaching with Wikipedia
Wednesday, November 16, 2:30-3:30pm, NVC 13-160
While Wikipedia is routinely discouraged as a citation source for college papers, it can be an effective teaching tool. Come hear how some instructors have incorporated the public editing capabilities of Wikipedia into their assignments and course learning goals. Share your own experiences with Wikipedia and brainstorm how Wikipedia can be used beyond searching. To RSVP click here.
Tech Thursdays: Annotation Tools – RESCHEDULED
New Date: Thursday, December 8, 4pm-5pm CTL office, Newman Library building Room 123 (within the Subotnick Financial Center)
Educause has two articles that might be of interest to faculty first learning about annotation tools. This article by Prof. Elyse Graham at SUNY Stony Brook offers historical context to the development of annotation tools. Click here to read a second article that discusses the benefits of using annotation tools.
