For this last session we are pleased to be joined by representatives from Columbia’s International Student Advisory Board. We will aim to foster discussion with a question and answer panel, calibrating the insights gained in the prior two sessions with the viewpoint of international undergraduate students.
Event Category: For Graduate Students
This is the second workshop in the Engaged Scholarship Event Series for Spring 2017. This series gives faculty and graduate students an introduction to engaged teaching and research methods. You will explore innovative community-engaged projects that are happening across campus, learn about models for service-learning in the classroom, and develop their own project ideas and assignments. We will delve into how and why to do community-engaged work with students.
How can we engage somatic awareness and centering through movement practices? In this session, we will explore a variety of techniques for developing presence and somatic awareness through the use of labyrinths, walking meditation, and yoga. We will consider how these movement practices can influence and inform teaching and learning in your classroom.
The CTL invites current Columbia graduate students or postdocs to register for microteaching sessions. Microteaching sessions are gatherings of 3-4 participants and a facilitator. Participants take turns delivering short samples of instruction to each other, and offering each other structured feedback.
This workshop builds on lessons learned in the Introduction to Courseworks (Canvas) workshops. During the workshop, instructors will learn how to set up graded assignments, discussions, and quizzes; assign grades using speedgrader; and organize assignments by groups and weights.
