This Week for Faculty: The Teaching Hour For Women of Color Faculty
The Teaching Hour: For Women of Color Faculty
The 2019-2020 Teaching Hour series aims to build on the teaching community fostered through last year’s series among Columbia’s underrepresented and diverse faculty population. Each of the sessions focus on questions and concerns participants bring to the forum and will be facilitated by staff from the Center for Teaching and Learning and the Office of the Vice Provost for Faculty Advancement.
These conversations will cultivate a community of peer mentorship by providing space for faculty instructors to share their successes and concerns related to teaching at Columbia. As we explore issues of diversity with both faculty and students in mind, we will collectively generate strategies to improve teaching practices, meet students’ needs, and support faculty in their various roles on campus. This session is for women of color faculty.
